Morris Library
#SIUDAY March 1, 2017

The mission of Library Affairs is to support the current and anticipated instructional, research, and service needs of SIU Carbondale.  Library Affairs is trusted to improve the lives of everyone SIU impacts by assuming a leadership role in providing intellectual, bibliographic, instructional and physical access to information resources.  The organization garners that trust by making user service its top priority.

Morris Library is the cornerstone to the excellent education the students of SIU Carbondale receive. Over the years, Morris has evolved from a collection of traditional print materials to a cornucopia of information.  The focus continues to be on being forward thinking while striving to serve the citizens of the state and scholars of the nation and world.   Morris Library furnishes the facilities and equipment necessary to meet technological needs; house, develop and preserve collections; and provide optimal space for users, staff and services.
