- About Us
The Academic Services Department is primarily a research assistance department with librarians with specialized knowledge in their research fields. Many of the librarians in this department formerly worked in the departments known as faculty and graduate services and undergraduate and community services. The services are divided into three separate disciplines for ease of access: humanities and fine arts; social sciences/education/business; and STEM.
K-State Libraries will increase visibility and understanding of staff, roles, services, collections, and programs of the Libraries to promote the added value that libraries and librarians bring to engagement.
K-State Libraries will collaborate with Kansas State University faculty and graduate students to integrate research-related skills into undergraduate curricula.
K-State Libraries will support the university’s programmatic undergraduate research and domestic service learning initiatives through means such as ongoing mentoring, customized group instruction in research skills, or direct participation in projects.
As a leading member of the New Literacies Alliance, K-State Libraries will develop online, adaptive modules to help students gain information literacy and digital literacy competencies.
