Office of the Dean

Welcome to the University Libraries at Appalachian State University. We strive to help the ASU community learn, teach, research, and create. We are proud to offer the expertise of our faculty and staff, robust physical and electronic collections, access to technology, and flexible spaces for study and collaboration. We value you and want to know how we can continue to improve your experience in our libraries.

I write this at a time of significant disruption to all our lives because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, part of the response to this public health emergency is to restrict access to Library employees only. We are using every available resource to continue to support the academic mission of the University. Access to our collections and resources are available through our websitee-mail, or phone. Please do not hesitate to contact us. I am confident in our ability to meet your needs.

When we are through this remarkable and historic period, I look forward to welcoming you once again to your Library.

Stay safe and well,

Paul Orkiszewski
