Welcome to the DePauw University Libraries!  Our primary goal is to serve and support the academic mission of the University.  We offer an array of resources and services to assist you.  Whether its in Roy O West, Music, Prevo Science or the Archives, we want to help meet your information needs.

This is a transitional time for libraries.  The modes of scholarly communication are changing.  While these changes offer exciting opportunities and unprecedented access to a broad range of materials, they can seemingly complicate the process.  We work hard to simplify this process as much as we can and are always ready to help each of you.

The Libraries are also a place of comfort.  Browse a newspaper, get a cup of coffee, study for a test, check your mail, or chat with a friend.  Make yourself at home.  Learning happens in a variety of ways.

I encourage you to Ask a Librarian, browse our web site, or share your comments and concerns with me.
