The Upjohn Library Commons building is open for current Kalamazoo College students, faculty, and staff.
The Kalamazoo College Library is housed in the Upjohn Library Commons. We are part of the Information Services unit, which also includes Technical and Media Services, Web Services, Administrative Computing, and Educational Technology. The Library includes the College Archives, the A.M. Todd Rare Book Room, and the Learning Commons.
Our vision is an empowered community. Our mission is to inform, educate, and inspire. Our core values are communication, collaboration, empathy, integrity, fun, and smart working (efficiently and effectively).
