Our Collection

The goal of the collection at the Champlain College Library is to provide support for the college’s dynamic curriculum and to aid in Champlain’s mission to provide a “radically pragmatic career-focused education.”

The Champlain College Library collects materials to support the academic and research needs of Champlain students, faculty, and staff. The primary criterion for acquiring materials is their relevance to Champlain's teaching and learning mission. Champlain College is a dynamic, educational institution with programs that evolve over time. The collection itself must be dynamic and responsive to the changing needs of the College’s curriculum. Generally, Champlain collects at the Instructional Support Level (as defined by the Research Libraries Group) to support coursework primarily at the undergraduate level and at the graduate level in some fields. Professional and research materials are included as needed by faculty and staff.
