Welcome to Mann Library!
I’m happy to welcome you to the Mann Library website and all the resources, services and features it offers in support of world-class scholarship.
The 2012/13 academic year is proving to be an exciting one at Mann Library as our students and faculty have embarked on their challenging and productive courses of research and learning for the year. Attendance at our library workshops has been at a record high, library study spaces started seeing an intense level of use practically from the first day of classes in August, and the displays that students have put up in various library spaces to showcase their work in fiber science, community development planning, and environmental design have been fabulous. With all this activity, the library’s role as crossroads for the gathering and exchange of ideas and information continues to evolve and develop.
While facilitating access to a full range of services and spaces for the varied needs of today’s scholars, the Mann website continues to be powerful conduit to this library’s stellar collections in the agriculture, life science, human ecology and applied social science disciplines. I invite you to explore these rich resources, many of which are now available online 24/7 thanks to Mann's Library’s place at the forefront of information technology innovation. If you have any comments or suggestions, please be sure to get in touch with us. We welcome your inquiry and feedback, and we wish you a fruitful and productive research experience.
