Libraries are for Everyone!

These multilingual signs of welcome are the work of Rebecca McCorkindale, a librarian and artist from Nebraska. Her positive and inspiring work has been featured in libraries around the world. 

The Libraries are for Everyone (LAFE) campaign resonates with us as we strive to empower our students, staff, and faculty to create, share ideas and access knowledge without fear or judgment. 

Welcome from University Librarian Mark Robertson
