Addressing the Needs of WVU Students

Student achievement is paramount to the library’s mission and is key to its success. The ways the libraries support student engagement and persistence include:

  1. Helping to build information skills and a sense of control as students become independent, lifelong learners.
  2. Providing a quiet place for individual and group study, with one-on-one assistance in accessing information.
  3. Providing a learner-focused instructional program that develops self-sufficiency in finding, selecting, evaluating and citing information.
  4. Empowering students to become information literate thus decreasing anxiety and increasing confidence in their ability to tackle new subjects and issues.
