Lemieux Library, originally built in 1966, was renovated, expanded, and transformed into the Lemieux Library & McGoldrick Learning Commons in 2010.
As the intellectual, educational, and physical heart of campus, the library provides a wide range of services and collections primarily to support the teaching, research, and learning goals of the Seattle University community.
As the premier independent academic library in the Pacific Northwest and as the intellectual and educational core of a vibrant academic community, A.A. Lemieux Library is:
The cumulative impact of our facilities, technologies, resources, and services: Engages the community in a full expression of teaching, learning, scholarship, and research; Enriches the individual and collaborative intellectual processes and personal experiences of
exploration and discovery as part of the search for truth; and, Enables in each student an active, lifelong ability to confront ideas, to master knowledge, and to learn continuously.
In partnership with our Learning Commons Partners, we offer a unique environment in which our students succeed in their academic programs and develop the attitudes and skills for a lifetime of intellectual vigor and continuous learning.
A.A. Lemieux Library integrates comprehensive collections, flexible and personalized services, innovative instructional programs, collaborative relationships, and enabling technologies – operating in, and accessible through, the physical and the digital environments – to make a powerful impact on the educational and scholarly processes of inquiry, discovery, teaching, and learning for the Seattle University academic community.
