Our Mission

The Gardner-Harvey Library was founded in 1966. In this space, our staff provides three aspects of what libraries are to the students, faculty, and staff at Miami University Middletown and the members of our surrounding community:

The Library as Place - the library serves as a location to study, relax, meet with others, and create information.

The Library as Stuff - the library staff collect, organize, and make available online and physical information sources, finding tools, and equipment to serve the needs of our community.

The Library as People - the library staff are here to help you discover information sources and help you decide how to best use them to meet your goals.

Our mission is to provide the Place and the Stuff, and then have our People give you any level of assistance you need to find and use information sources to create your own sources and products.
