From your Librarian

Welcome to the Griffin Campus Library, a branch of the University of Georgia Libraries.

Located on the first floor of the Stuckey Building, the library houses a collection of agricultural and applied sciences and related subjects. The library is open to the general public and many of its information resources are available to the public free of charge.

Information needs of the academic community continue to grow and the library at the Griffin campus plays a vital role in meeting those needs –  providing access to its collections of databases, books, journals and documents both online and on the shelf. Challenges continue to grow: increasing demands are being placed on the scientific community to manage and disseminate data; today’s student must develop competencies in finding, understanding and using scholarly information that in many ways are becoming increasingly complicated; spaces need to facilitate collaborative learning whether in the laboratory, classroom, lecture hall or library.

I believe it is important for the library to respond to new developments in the information environment, whether through its offerings of workshops, classes, course-integrated instruction, online tutorials or the assistance that can be provided in helping scholars to archive, manage and disseminate their work.

I am excited about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. I encourage you to explore with our library staff ways in which we can help you. I look forward to your ideas and comments.
