The Campus Library – Why It’s The Most Valuable Campus Resource

Libraries are the nucleus of a college. They hum with social and intellectual activity, and are truly the center of learning. They contain the critical resources that make learning possible—books, journals, workstations, printers, etc.—as well as skilled specialists who can help a student navigate a research topic.

Here at KIT we understand that library is often the place students go to get down to business, to reflect and process what they learned in class. Students don’t even have to go to the library in order to benefit from its resources. College libraries provide access to invaluable online resources, from databases to electronic journals to tutorials.

Students who use the library and its resources succeed. Here are the five key reasons the library is the most valuable campus resource—and ways students can get the most out of it:
 

1. It’s a productive and inspiring study space

When a student works at home or in a coffee shop, there are innumerable distractions.
However, many students consider the library “a safe harbor from everyday distraction.”
The majority of students surveyed described the library as a place “where they could rely on library equipment rather than their own devices that often had too many easy access distractions, including Facebook” and a place “where students could unplug entirely and work in solitude during the final weeks of the term.”

The library space itself—and the act of going to the library—signals that it’s time to focus. Also, seeing other students hard at work is inspiring. Some students even describe witnessing others studying as “contagious.”

2. It’s a great meeting place

It’s not all hushed voices and the soft click-clacking of laptop keyboards. Students also see the library as a social hub. The communal spaces are good places to meet up with friends or meet new people. Study groups can also meet in these areas or in smaller study rooms, where they can freely discuss an upcoming project or exam.

3. It has the technology students need

Our libraries usually have rich technology resources, from computer workstations to 3D printers. It’s no wonder students see the library as the place to go to access the technology needed for a project. Often library staff can help a student troubleshoot a technology issue—whether that’s software or hardware related. 

4. The librarians

Librarians are the center of the center of campus. They are information literacy
specialists with expert knowledge of the library catalog, databases, and other technology and systems students rely on. They can help identify effective search terms and point students to sources in the stacks or online that students would likely not access on their own. 

5. The library system website and digital resources

Most students do recognize the value of their library’s website and digital resources. The library website is a hub unto itself; there, students may find everything from online writing tutorials to discussion boards. Another feature of every library website is a portal to the school’s subscription databases. These databases are essential and, because they are also reliable and easy to use, most college students make good use of them; after all, a student can access in-depth, credible information in just a few keystrokes.

Some academic libraries also offer data and statistical services to support students through all phases of a research project, from acquiring and manipulating data to creating tables and graphs to interpreting statistics.

It’s no wonder that students spend so much time in the library—or on the library website. It is the place to connect, investigate, question, and learn. It’s a rich, dynamic resource; students who understand that early in their academic careers will be more successful.
