UMass Amherst Libraries

Academic libraries play an important role in efforts to retain students and help them succeed.  They provide formal and informal learning environments for students to thrive as members of a research community.  Moreover, they instill learning skills that students can transfer and apply beyond their university experience to the greater good of our knowledge-driven and global society.  As you interact with your students, encourage them to utilize the UMass Amherst Libraries and their resources in pursuit of their academic career.
