Mission of the Firelands Library
The mission of the BGSU Firelands library is to meet the informational needs of the College community. That community consists of students, faculty and staff of the College and, to a lesser degree, the citizens of the College's service area. The library attempts to meet those informational needs by acquiring information in a variety of formats, by organizing that information for ease of access, by helping people access, interpret and use that information and, finally, by discarding outdated information. Since much of what goes on at a college centers around information - collection, organizing, applying, transferring and even creating it - the library becomes a key element in the college's operation.
