Introduction Print Page

Welcome to the McCain Library

McCain Library is both a knowledge space and a gateway to resources and services. The library’s mission is to support and enrich the educational program of Agnes Scott College, contributing to graduating students capable of finding, evaluating and synthesizing information. 

An important component of this mission is the cultivation of library and information literacy skills necessary to intellectual independence and life-long learning.

The library seeks a close partnership with faculty so that we can best understand and meet the curricular needs of the community. Your questions, advice, and feedback are welcome at all times.
