Office of the Dean of Libraries and University Librarian


The Mason Libraries strive to be a transformational partner in deepening the impact of research, teaching, and learning for the entire university community. We are committed to providing a foundation for intellectual activity and the creation of research and creative expression. The Libraries are a place for quiet study and focus; a place for dynamic collaboration and deep conversation; a place where curiosity becomes growth; and a place where technology builds a bridge to new approaches and a better understanding.


We collect and preserve knowledge, empower users with information and digital literacy, and support both traditional and open access publishing. Whether you are on the Fairfax, Mason Square, or Science & Technology campuses, or online, the Libraries are here to support your academic success. Please let us know how we can help by contacting us through our Ask a Librarian service.
