Through integrated services, Library & Information Services (LBIS) connects the Kenyon community to comprehensive and reliable resources and expertise. We develop the skills in ourselves and others to effectively navigate and engage with those resources amidst an evolving technology and information environment. We value positive experiences and creating an inclusive culture of collaboration, innovation, and integrity.
We are organized into four departments:
Provides traditional library services including finding and borrowing materials including course readings; research assistance and instruction; classroom, study and exhibit spaces; archives and special collections.
The Office of Institutional Research collects, organizes, analyzes, interprets and disseminates institutional data and intelligence for the purpose of decision-making, policy formation, planning and assessment of programs and activities.
Support for accounts and security; classroom and desktop technology; Google Workspace (including email); telephones; networking; printing; and enterprise applications (including Kenyon Reservations, Personal Access Pages, Plan Ahead, RAVE emergency alert system, Mobile ID and Banner).
Support for audio-visual technology in teaching spaces; public computing labs; technology for internal and guest events; and digitization. User Services also includes Helpline, the student-staffed technology help desk.
