Welcome to K-State Libraries!

I’d like to extend a warm and enthusiastic welcome to all our students, faculty, staff, extension offices and local community members.

We were busy during the winter break as we added new furniture to make Hale Library’s spaces more welcoming, modern, and functional. This was the last part of the fire recovery and reconstruction. The state-of-the art facility provides us with exciting opportunities to support student success, collaborate with campus partners and create new community connections.

K-State Libraries remain committed to fostering academic excellence and are excited about resuming in-person services.

We serve as the informational and intellectual commons for our public, land-grant institution. Our main and branch libraries provide specialized research support and information literacy services, access to an array of carefully curated online and physical resources, technologically infused study-rooms, collaborative and quiet spaces, reading rooms, special collections and university records management. The Sunderland Foundation Innovation Lab further expands our services through a media studio, makerspaces, Liquid Galaxy display and more.

Our faculty and staff look forward to seeing you in person or online. Please feel free to reach out to me directly with any comments or recommendations by clicking the button below. I wish you a successful semester!

Go wildcats!

Joe Mocnik, Ph.D.

Dean of Libraries
