The mission of the University Library at The University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College is to combine the strengths of a community college library with those of an upper-level and graduate library to enhance and facilitate the dissemination of information—through print, media, audio and electronic resources—to faculty, staff and students, thereby meeting their educational needs. The library’s goal is to provide quality services to respond to these needs.
The library’s objective is to provide electronic bibliographic access to the best materials within its own system and to materials located elsewhere. The University of Texas at Brownsville is part of the University of Texas System and has access to a myriad of resources beyond its own region. Because the University offers graduate work, the intention of the library is to provide resources that are substantially beyond those required for its baccalaureate programs and to make every effort to develop further holdings that will support new degree programs.
The goal of the University Library is to play an essential role in the teaching and learning mission of the University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College. The library consistently strives to update its computer technology and develop efficiently its print and non-print collection to meet the scholastic needs of its users.
