About the Library

Library Mission

Bowdoin College library staff, services, and information resources advance the pursuit of knowledge and self-enrichment by providing access to the world of information and ideas. In support of that mission, the library serves as an intellectual and cultural gathering place that fosters and enhances learning, education, research, and personal fulfillment.
