Vasché Library

The mission of the University’s Vasché Library is to provide access to information resources and services that facilitate teaching, learning, and research, and to provide an environment that encourages and enables those in our diverse community to expand their intellectual, cultural and artistic horizons. The collections of the University Library include more than 370,000 volumes, 841 print journal subscriptions, access to 141 electronic databases, and a growing number of electronic journals, video recordings, and compact discs. There are also more than 7,000 e-books from which to choose. Approximately 5,000 books are acquired each year. Since 1965, the library has been a partial depository of federal, state and local documents. Other special collections include the University archive, with documents on local and University history, and the juvenile collection, which has more than 6,000 volumes of award-winning and notable titles in children’s literature and the Francis Sargis Modern Assyrian Heritage Collection. The Vasché Library will undergo extensive remodeling beginning in 2019.
