J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College’s library will provide an environment where students and faculty can meet their learning and teaching needs and develop lifelong habits of self-improvement, free inquiry and free-expression.

In order to achieve this, Reynolds’ library must provide services that allow users to obtain and evaluate information from many different sources in different formats, providing seamless support for planning, researching and completing academic work to improve the quality of student learning. Improved performance will translate into improved student success, one of the college’s major values. Other significant college values include teaching, learning, inclusiveness and collaboration.

To support these values, the college’s library will be:

An intellectual center ensuring access to quality, cost-effective resources and tools in a variety of easily accessible formats

A collaborative space for students, faculty and librarians encouraging learning communities and group work across diverse disciplines

A student-centered space for advancing social interactions and dialogue

A resourceful place where students can come to enhance their knowledge of research skills and find professional librarians to assist them

A comfortable space for group or individual work as well as quiet study
