Mission Statement

Mission Vision Values Actions Assessment

We, the Bankier Library faculty and staff, are committed to student success. We continue, supplement and enhance the classroom experience by providing information literacy components as part of the learning program developed in consultation with classroom faculty. We select and provide assistance in the use of the resources for scholarly inquiry appropriate to the curriculum and mission of the College and its partner institutions.

In a comprehensive program of research and study services, we seek to provide:

  • Quality instruction in the research process
  • Optimal access to published, recorded or networked information
  • A collection of library materials in varied formats
  • Facilities and equipment maintained for effective scholarly use

While the curriculum is the key to our selection criteria, we also consider:

  • Varied learning styles and abilities
  • Diverse and multicultural interests
  • Personal enrichment and lifelong learning

The Bankier Library provides discretionary access to information and resource-sharing for Monmouth County residents and other libraries.
