About Us: Library Overview
The library's main mission is to support the educational and research goals of WTAMU students and faculty. That broad goal requires that we:
- Provide access to multiple sources of high quality information sources.
- Assist students and faculty in acquiring and using that information.
- Provide a central meeting and study place for all.
- Host events and activities that make WTAMU a first-choice institution.
Library staff duties include collection development, cataloging, purchasing materials, maintaining access to electronic resources, obtaining interlibrary loan material, providing instruction and research assistance, handling reserve materials, training student workers, and other non-routine tasks.
Student workers are critical to library operations. The library is open 86 hours a week during fall and spring semesters. Student workers allow us to have all of our service desks staffed all the hours the library is open. A librarian is on duty at the Reference Desk whenever the library is open. Student workers also help with the routine jobs like shelving and checking material in and out.
