A Message from Caroline Fuchs, University Librarian

Welcome back to St. John’s University! We’re glad to see you on campus and online! As the fall 2021 semester begins, I ask you to join with me in a celebration of new beginnings.
The University Libraries is more than books on a shelf or a quiet place to study. We are here to support your research needs in an open and inclusive environment, to empower you to discover the diverse voices of the past in order to empower you to use your own voices to create new scholarship. We will do our best to embody a welcoming spirit so that everyone feels a sense of belonging when they enter our spaces, use our collections and reach out for our services. We are partners on this journey together. We welcome your thoughts and insights as we commit to a new year of excellence.
On behalf of the University Libraries, I wish you a successful academic year.

Prof. Caroline Fuchs, University Librarian
