"The marvelous thing is that even in studying linguistics, we find that the universe as a whole is patterned, ordered, and to some degree intelligible to us." --Kenneth L. Pike
The Mission of the Mark & Helen Osterlin Library is to provide timely access to recorded information; to meet the needs of the curricular and service programs of the college; to teach library and information skills for lifelong learning; to stimulate and support the faculty in improving teaching and learning; and, insofar as possible, to share resources with those outside the college.
Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information on it.
--Samuel Johnson (writer, 1709-1784)
