Rutgers President Congratulates Libraries

Members of the Rutgers Community:

I invite you to join me in expressing appreciation to the Rutgers University Libraries during National Library Week, April 10-16, 2005. Our libraries play a vital role at Rutgers by providing all of us with the scholarly resources we need to be successful students, teachers, and researchers. Libraries today are dynamic places, and library workers are the ultimate search engine - helping all of us find what we need, when we need it.

The Rutgers University Libraries welcome nearly 3 million visitors to their buildings each year, and many more virtual visitors are served by the Libraries website. The range of activities in which our librarians and staff engage to support teaching and research at Rutgers is amazing. Whether you are using a scholarly journal in the stacks or online, downloading an electronic reserve or interlibrary loan article, sending a question to Ask a Librarian, checking out a book, learning from Searchpath, or reading quietly in an inspiring space, you can be sure that many hands at the Libraries worked together to provide that opportunity.

There is something for everyone at our Libraries, and I extend my congratulations and appreciation to all those who make that possible.

Sincerely yours,
Signature of Richard L. McCormick
