The Library program at Gustavus Adolphus College advances the teaching mission and intellectual life of the College by selecting and facilitating access to information and by instructing in its use, interpretation, and evaluation.


Through an established library instruction session program and one-on-one consultations at the reference desk, the library supports students as they enter, explore and contribute to ongoing scholarly conversations.

Vision statement

The Library program at Gustavus Adolphus College will play an essential role in engaging students in critical inquiry and developing the skills and dispositions of life-long learners, prepared for lives of leadership and service in a diverse and fast-changing world. To do this, the library will support the curriculum with materials and opportunities for course-related and independent learning; will provide leadership in fostering information literacy across the curriculum; will inform the community of emerging issues in information policy and trends; and will support the intellectual and cultural life of the college by developing programs, collections, and an engaging physical and virtual space for exploration.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Reading Workshop - In this course students read and discuss two or more books, including a contemporary work of fiction or non-fiction announced in advance and a book chosen by the student, Students publish reviews of the books they read to a book-related social network, reflect on their own reading histories and practices, and explore the place of books and literacy in contemporary culture.
  • Information Fluency - This course gives students interested in going to graduate or professional school—or who simply want to know more about research—an immersion in the structure of the literature of their chosen field and exposure to research tools and collections.
