Welcome to the Columbia State Libraries! We are here to serve your information needs. Trying to find something? Have a research question? Need help with an assignment? Library staff are ready to assist you.
The purpose of the library is to “provide the library resources, services, technologies, instruction, and assistance necessary to meet the information and research needs of the college community, support the college’s mission and programs, and promote lifelong learning.”
In support of the College mission and vision and the library purpose, the library selects, acquires, organizes, manages, and preserves a range of information resources appropriate to the College’s curriculum and mission, provides access to information resources through subscriptions to electronic databases, extends library resources by networking and sharing resources with other libraries, and offers reference and instructional services appropriate to materials owned or accessed.
