Celebrating Human Knowledge and Intellectual Curiosity
at the Stony Brook University Libraries.

It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to Stony Brook University Libraries. The Stony Brook University Libraries is known for a wide-range of digital and print resources and world-renowned special collections. A member of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the Libraries comprise eight libraries in distinct disciplines and locations. Our mission of global leadership aims to advance research, discovery, and learning, by positioning the Libraries as the hub of collaboration, digital innovation and scholarly endeavors.

My library colleagues are transforming the user experience by building expertise and developing communities that promote intellectual curiosity. We enable the dissemination, preservation, and creation of new knowledge by remaining committed to delivering world-class physical and digital content and services critical to research, learning and teaching, now and in the future.
