Library Mission

Evergreen Library and Media Services is dedicated to the best possible service to the interdisciplinary programs, students, staff, and faculty of The Evergreen State College. We continually strive to seek new and innovative ways to provide information in all possible formats in order to meet the ever-changing research and academic needs of our patrons, provide quality instruction in the use of the materials available through the Library, and serve as a repository of unique titles and collections for our patrons, our community, and the Pacific Northwest region.

The Library houses a collection of over three-quarters of a million print and media items and provides more than 35,000 journal titles, largely in digital format. The Library also maintains special collections of rare books and archival materials. Media Services offers students, faculty, and staff across the curriculum access to media equipment, production facilities, production services and media instruction. Library and Media Services resides within the Information Technology Wing of the Library building.
