East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania, one of fourteen State-owned institutions in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, aims to be the institution of first choice for students seeking a comprehensive university distinguished by innovation and a tradition where students learn to serve, lead and succeed in a global society. To achieve that, students participate in challenging and contemporary undergraduate and graduate curricula, a learning community that promotes diversity and acknowledges the primacy of teaching, and engage in research and creative activities in a university that provides leadership and service in the educational, cultural and economic development of its region.
The University Library at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania (ESU) supports the mission of the university by providing materials, services, equipment, spaces, and environments that support the curricula, assist students, faculty and staff with their study, research, and informational needs, and stimulate cultural development. The Library is an active participant in ensuring that students graduating from ESU are information literate. The University Library also contributes to the strengthening of relationships between ESU and its region through library-based services and activities.
