To provide informational resources in support of the academic and research programs of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and to provide professional and expert reference assistance and instruction to the University's students, faculty, staff, and to the general public in their research or information-seeking processes.


The primary patrons are the University's students, faculty, and staff. Reference offers some services and facilities to the general public; however, they may give priority to current members of the University in the use of any service or reference tool. Users of federal government information resources and services will be provided services comparable to those for primary patrons.
