Auraria Library 08.21.2017

Fall 2017 Welcome

The Auraria Library welcomes the students, faculty, and staff of the 3 institutions that we serve, the Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the University of Colorado Denver.  The Auraria Library is a space for intellectual discovery, creative pursuits, respectful exchange of ideas, and fruitful collaboration that is devoted to your success. We advocate for intellectual and academic freedom, privacy, confidentiality, rigorous research, diverse perspectives, and open and equitable access to information.

Now more than ever, it is critical that libraries ensure access to credible sources of news, data, and knowledge, and provide expertise, services, collections, tools, and inclusive spaces to help our community members critically assess the information they encounter. Therefore, our Mission, Vision, and Values remain as:

  • Mission - To foster intellectual growth, academic success, and life‐long learning for the students, faculty, and staff of the diverse urban campus of Auraria.
  • Vision - To be the heart of the learning experience.
  • Values - Intellectual Freedom, Service, Inclusivity, Collaboration and Stewardship

The Auraria Library is here to partner with you in your success and looks forward to working with and hearing from you. We wish you a productive fall semester.
