In support of the Sul Ross State University Mission, the Bryan Wildenthal Memorial Library provides collections and services needed to conduct research and to effectively and efficiently teach, as well as instruction and assistance in information retrieval, information literacy, and scholarly communication, and provides the required physical place for students and faculty to collaborate and exchange ideas.
The Library is a strategic institutional asset in the creative exploration, intellectual growth, and scholarly pursuits of the students, faculty, and staff at Sul Ross State University and the community of the Big Bend and US-Mexico border regions of Texas.
The mission of the Library is to provide the learning resources and services necessary to support the educational, research, and informational needs of the University, the Alpine community, and the Big Bend area. The primary resources of the Library are its collections and its staff.
