We equalize opportunity and access to information and resources - inclusion for all - which is critical not only to scholarship but to democracy.

The Penn Libraries is a great democratizer at this University, equalizing access to information and technology for all of our students and all those in the community and around the world who stand to benefit from our resources and expertise.

Eliminating traditional restrictions on the flow of information is central to the Penn Libraries' dramatic and meaningful commitment to hands-on scholarship for all, literally and figuratively. 

On campus and off, we are an integral part of the University’s long commitment to helping more people lead healthy, prosperous lives.
