A note from Interim Dean of Libraries Leslie J. Reynolds

Leslie ReynoldsOn behalf of the staff and faculty of the University of Colorado Boulder Libraries, I am pleased to share our vision to be the heart of higher education, providing essential scholarly resources, user-centered services, and inclusive spaces to the University, local, and global communities. 

Ours is a mission driven by the strong belief that the University of Colorado values knowledge above information. The philosophy of service that we live by is therefore based on a high value for responsive, demand-driven smart services, collections of strong integrity, creative and innovative operations and services, realistic yet flexible goals, and an environment where students, staff and faculty can continue to grow and develop.  

Joining in our mission is Friends of the Libraries, an organization that assists the Libraries in supporting students and involving the community in our work.

The University of Colorado Boulder Libraries are a dynamic partner in creating, disseminating, and advancing scholarship.  Our organization inspires learning, research, and discovery by connecting knowledge, information, and people.

We are dedicated to inquiry, discovery and self-education. And, through our website we intend to be accessible to you, independent of time, place or personal pace.
