On behalf of the library staff at Briar Cliff University I would like to welcome you to the Bishop Mueller Library web site. We are pleased you have chosen to visit our web site to learn more about the services we provide. Whatever your educational plans, I am confident we can assist you in achieving your goals. We have an instructional focus and offer many services intended to help you gain the skills and confidence necessary to complete academic assignments and satisfy individual inquiry. As you work on projects requiring access to information remember we are here to help you in every step of the process.
We work closely with faculty as partners in developing course modules designed to develop the skills required to succeed in the 21st-century. This includes skills needed to think critically when forming the research question, to evaluating newly found information, through ethically using the information found in any format. Librarians are also ready to assist the entire Briar Cliff Community with skill sets required to thrive in the digital age.
Your learning experience is important to us at Briar Cliff University so you will find our librarians eager to motivate and assist you in your educational journey. It does not matter if this is your first time in college, a returning student, or someone seeking retraining; we want to encourage you to set aside any fears and work hard to achieve your goals.
Please let us know if we can assist you in any way and again, welcome to Briar Cliff University!
Deb Robertson, MLS Director of Library and Information Services
