         by stimulating interest in reading and appreciation of literature through group instruction and individual guidance;

 

         by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in multiple formats;

 

         by fostering good citizenship in the use and care of library materials and facilities;

 

         by working with faculty and staff to integrate library skills within the subject areas; and,
