In support of the University’s mission and shared values, the Libraries contribute to and support learners as they discover, access, and use information effectively for academic success, research, and life-long learning.
The UNLV Libraries will define the new academic research library—bringing people and information together in innovative ways. As UNLV emerges as a leading urban research institution, the Libraries will pioneer dynamic, user-focused methods of reaching, connecting, and engaging learners.
Diversity and Inclusion Statement
The University Libraries is open to all people and affirms its commitment and dedication to diversity, inclusion, equity, and cultural awareness. We welcome everyone, including people of color, immigrants, adherents of all belief systems or religions and those that do not profess or practice a religion, people of all genders and sexual orientations, and all other members of marginalized communities or oppressed groups. We encourage discovery and learning in spaces where all people are respected and protected. Within our spaces, we seek to protect everyone from all forms of hostility and oppression, including sexism, misogyny, ableism, racism, classism, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia, and religious persecution.
As a library, we defend intellectual freedom, oppose censorship, and uphold our commitment to the free and open exchange of ideas and viewpoints that is the very foundation of democracy and a part of our campus mission. We honor the voices and lived experiences of all members of our community. We see it as fundamental to the Libraries’ mission to foster a sense of belonging and to provide welcoming and inclusive surroundings where all people are treated with respect and dignity.
