The K-State Salina Library will be a model of excellence for technical libraries in service and resources. The library will endeavor to contain the finest and most current technical and scientific information through collection development, modern computing, and telecommunication technology.

We believe in the freedom

To Read,
To Learn,
To Discover


The mission of the K-State Salina Library is to support the college in its mission of teaching, scholarship, and service, and to support resource sharing in the community and state. In striving to fulfill this goals, the philosophy of the library is changing. The Library is no longer a warehouse of materials; it is a facilitator of information exchange. Successful implementation of these goals is influenced by a tradition of providing print and non-print resource materials, the promise of new technologies, and well-trained library staff who facilitate information access.
