Hussian Library’s Mission: The library of Hussian College contributes to the mission of the institution by providing resources that inspire creativity and enrich the academic community. The library is not only a physical space but also a virtual space where the Hussian community can interact, create, and collaborate. Hussian’s library includes helpful resources that support our school’s curriculum. In addition to the physical resources that are on campus, Hussian has developed a resource share with Harrisburg University. Hussian students are able to request materials from Harrisburg’s extensive collection.
