Our mission at Raynor Memorial Libraries is to foster growth in learning, scholarship and discovery for our campus community. Our librarians and staff are committed to providing an atmosphere of service and stewardship for our users and are focused on engaging in collaborative initiatives with faculty to create an environment for research, teaching and learning.
We believe that an open partnership between librarians and faculty plays a pivotal role in inspiring scholastic activity, and our services are tailored to meet your research needs. Included among the many services we offer at the libraries are full access to an ever-expanding collection of print and electronic resources; emerging and cutting-edge digital technologies; personalized information research sessions with our librarians; and more.
We hope you will take some time to explore all that Raynor Memorial Libraries have to offer you and your students. Bring us your questions and suggestions, either through your subject librarian, departmental library representative, or the Library Board members. You also may contact us directly, through the online suggestion module, by calling our staff members, or by contacting me directly: 288-7214 or e-mail.
On behalf of the library staff and the whole Marquette family, I want to welcome you to Raynor Memorial Libraries. Come see what we can do for you!
