A World of Information at Your Fingertips

The United States University Library mission is to support the learning, research, and academic success of the students, faculty, and alumni. Through campus and online information literacy, the library responds to the information needs of the USU community with a supportive student- and learning-centered approach.

The academic curricula are supported by access to online databases subscribed to by the University, and by text-based, recorded, and interactive web-based information literacy training. The comprehensive information literacy training program supports student research: the librarian provides research assistance in person, by telephone, by email, and by webinar; a virtual reference service is also available seven days a week to assist students and faculty.
