About Us

Welcome! Buswell is a teaching library whose mission is to build physical and virtual academic resources, foster skilled and confident users of these resources, and promote community on the Wheaton campus.

The library is the shared center of intellectual inquiry and discovery for Wheaton College. We nurture partnerships that augment our resources, teaching mission, and the community of which we are a part. We seek to thoroughly integrate our teaching into the curriculum through active involvement in curricular development, partnerships with faculty and academic departments, awareness and promotion of emerging trends and resources, and direct engagement with students both within and outside of the classroom. We promote community by sponsoring and participating in campus-wide activities and encouraging the creative use of the library's physical and virtual spaces.
