The University Library collects, preserves, and provides access to materials and information in a variety of formats to support the teaching, learning, research, information, programmatic, and administrative needs of the UW-Stout community. The library collection supports the mission, vision, and values of the University Library and UW-Stout.
The University Library is committed to providing access to information that reflects diverse experiences among people, including, but not limited to, differences in ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, economic status, and perspective.
The University Library is dedicated to academic freedom, intellectual freedom, and equitable access to information. The library endorses the principles of the Freedom to Read Statement and the Library Bill of Rights, as adopted by the American Library Association. Diverse points of view, including controversial and unorthodox subjects, are available in our collections. Inclusion in the collection does not imply that the library or university approves of the contents of the materials.
