UC Merced Library Mission Statement

Situated in California’s Central Valley, located on the traditional homeland of the Yokuts and Miwuk, and part of the world’s leading public research university system, the UC Merced Library empowers researchers, celebrates our region’s diversity, expands access to information, and fosters student belonging. We provide valuable expertise, advance critical inquiry, invest in collections, preserve unique resources, forge collaborations, and create welcoming space and services.
