Dean's Welcome

WELCOME..... to University Library and Learning Resources, the center for academic research at Alabama State University. As you virtually visit our library and information center, you will find many interesting links to networked information locally and worldwide.

As you search our online catalog, HORNET ( High-tech Online Research Network), you may choose to visit our Public Services departments, distant learning facilities, or locate research information through our totally connected web based catalog.

From your desktop, you can explore our National Center Portal that houses the E.D. Nixon collection of multimedia materials pertinent to the Montgomery Bus Boycott and other valuable resources housed in our Special Collections. We envision dynamic, intelligent networked information services in our library to continually support the research needs of the University and our virtual community.

On behalf of the Library and Learning Resources Staff, I would like to again welcome you to our evolving electronic library research network. Our mission is to provide learning opportunities, resources, facilities, and services to support teaching, research, scholarship, and cultural activities at Alabama State University and its local and global communities.

Janice Franklin, Ph.D.
