Statement on JMU Libraries as Safe Spaces

Posted on: November 17, 2016

In light of current events, the administration of JMU Libraries & Educational Technologies would like to publicly reaffirm our commitment to our community. We will continue to uphold the fundamental values of librarianship, including diversity, equity, inclusion, the right to privacy, intellectual freedom, and democracy. We are fully committed to our mission: To engage with JMU’s diverse communities in their creation and search for knowledge through academic resources, physical and virtual spaces, and educational and research services. We affirm that the libraries are a safe space for everyone, in keeping with our mission. We recognize that many people in the JMU community are feeling vulnerable at the moment. Please know that we are here to help you find the information and support you need, now and in the future.

Some of the resources that may be of assistance at this time include:
