Library Support & Services

Through the development of extensive library collections and the implementation of wide-ranging library, reference, and research support options, Library Services aims to support students, faculty, and other members of the Kean community in their research, scholarship, creative works, and innovative use of technology. Digital and print collections, including OER materials, are selected to meet the teaching, learning, and research needs of students and faculty at New Jersey’s first urban research university. Library Services actively supports diversity, equity, and inclusion by acquiring and collecting diverse resources and providing culturally inclusive programming. Resources are selected in various formats to support distinctive learning styles of patrons within the BIPOC community. Librarians and other library personnel put particular emphasis on helping Kean students to search for and access relevant information for their various academic needs and to develop the information literacy skills that will support career development and lifelong learning.
