Killam Library Mission Statement

The library provides materials and service to meet the information needs of the students, faculty, and staff of Texas A&M International University. Library services and materials support the university’s instructional programs at all levels. Through a combination of locally owned collections and access to off-site information resources, the library supports the research and current awareness needs of the university faculty and students at a level appropriate to the university’s mission. The library enhances the availability of resources to the local university community and serves the academic community at the local, state, and regional levels through participation in cooperative library programs. The library supports the public service programs of the university and, as its resources permit, serves information needs of the local border community. The library develops its resources in accordance with the international focus of the university. Services to fulfill this mission include: collection development, maintenance and preservation, library assistance and instruction, circulation, library technology infrastructure, and interlibrary services.

  • Access Privileges to Online Databases
    Due to licensing restrictions, remote access to TAMIU online resources is restricted to current students, faculty, and staff. Emeritus faculty retain full faculty borrowing and library privileges, including remote access to select University online resources. Visiting scholars, including recent doctoral graduates, approved by the University may be given remote access to University databases for limited periods of time.

    Research materials within the Texas A&M International University Library continue to be available to the general public, however, the license agreements with publishers and database providers require that public access to library resources occur via computers in the library designated for public use.
