Our Philosophy

Lyons Memorial Library forms the intellectual focus of the College of the Ozarks campus. We believe that the purpose of the library is to support the curriculum; to provide resources for research; and to unify, strengthen, and broaden the intellectual and cultural activities that take place on campus.

College of the Ozarks believes that the library should be used for teaching and research; it should serve students, faculty, community members, and other educational institutions; and, it should promote an attitude of intellectual curiosity and the wonder of discovery.

The basic objective of Lyons Memorial Library is to support the instructional programs of College of the Ozarks. To this end, the librarians strive:

  1. to instruct students in the efficient use of the library and to assist them in their search for materials;
  2. to assist and cooperate with faculty members in their instructional programs;
  3. to secure, organize, and service books, periodicals, electronic resources, documents, audio-visual materials, and equipment to meet the needs of students and faculty;
  4. to provide the physical facilities and equipment that will make possible the most effective use of the library;
  5. to cooperate with other libraries in the area and to honor interlibrary loan requests from all libraries.
