The Armacost Library plays an integral role in the intellectual and cultural life of the University of Redlands by facilitating the transformation of information into knowledge.  

With a firm grasp of the hidden complexities of information in the 21st century, librarians collaborate with faculty colleagues to:

  • design and teach pedagogically sound lessons
  • build balanced and curriculum-centered collections
  • raise awareness of information-related movements and issues
  • empower the University community to effectively locate, critically evaluate and use information across disciplines 

We aim to fulfill your information needs in the present while preparing for the future. Visit us in person or on the web to learn more about our work.

Our Vision

As the intellectual center of the University of Redlands, the Armacost Library will enrich our community by partnering across campus to nurture the scholarly and cultural life of the University and by inspiring students to engage in self-directed inquiry and the exchange of ideas in order to become effective critical thinkers and responsible doers as they strive to positively impact the world.

Our Mission

The mission of the Armacost Library at the University of Redlands is to support the teaching, research and learning goals of the University community by providing access to information resources in various formats and by promoting lifelong learning skills to identify, find, evaluate, use and communicate information that reflects a commitment to academic rigor and a better understanding of our world.
