Mission of the Hesburgh Libraries of Notre Dame


The mission of the library is to connect people to knowledge across time and space. It is the library’s job to acquire, preserve, organize and steward this knowledge in a way that makes it accessible for study by all scholars throughout time.

To that end, the Hesburgh Libraries contributes to the mission of the University by providing distinctive collections, services, tools, and spaces that enhance teaching, learning, and research for, and in collaboration with the University community.
