About Pierce Library

About Pierce Library

The library is the intellectual heart of the college and the community. Pierce Library supports the institutional mission of Eastern Oregon University by providing materials and services for all members of the college community. It supports the regional mission of the college by providing materials and services in connection with institutional outreach programs, through cooperative participation in regional library networks, and by making its collections and services available to the people of eastern Oregon.

The library’s collection includes over 153,000 book volumes and 1,300 periodical titles, together with extensive holdings in maps, U.S. government publications, Oregon documents, audio-visuals, and microforms. This all adds up to over 660,000 items to help you with your information needs. In addition, Pierce Library participates in two union catalogs: the Sage Library System, a multi-type library system which is a combined catalog of academic, public, and school libraries in the 10 eastern-most counties of Oregon; and Summit, the Orbis Cascade Alliance of 39 academic libraries in Oregon and Washington.

Our Vision

We are committed to creating and maintaining a dynamic environment, focused on service and guided by the principles of intellectual freedom, that encourages access to the cultural, historical and intellectual achievements of humankind.

Our Mission

Pierce Library will provide access to quality and current research materials and services for the students, faculty and staff of Eastern Oregon University, regardless of location, and for the eastern Oregon community.
