Assessing The Mabee-Simpson Library

Image of College Seal in Lyon Building Rotunda

"Lyon College engages in a comprehensive, systematic, and regular process of assessment to ensure the offering of curricular and co-curricular programs and support services of superior quality in a personalized setting."  This is from the college's assessment page and accordingly, the library follows suit.

Posted below are annual surveys of students and faculty and staff that assess the library's effectiveness in providing quality resources and services.  This is by all means not the only assessment method the library uses, but this one is easy to view and understand at a glance.

Mission Statement

In support of the mission of Lyon College, the Mabee-Simpson Library provides superior quality resources and services that foster learning, working, and professional development. While many of these resources are accessible through the campus network, many are also available in a comfortable physical facility that encourages freedom of inquiry, social exchanges, and the pursuit of personal growth.  Library services will enrich the intellectual and cultural environment of the College, while promoting and supporting lifelong learning among students, faculty, and staff.
