A Message from the Library Director


Dr. Juanita Midgette-Spence, Director of Library ServicesWelcome to the G.R. Little Library at Elizabeth City State University. It has been an honor to lead the G.R. Little Library as we endeavor to expand the reach of library services. The library team is committed to serving our users, whether it is reviewing a new online resource, selecting a new reference book, teaching an information literacy session, or obtaining an item through Interlibrary Loan.

The library’s efforts center on our vision to be "the intellectual and technological heart of Elizabeth City State University." The library will serve as the educational leader in preparing students for success as information-literate global citizens and lifelong learners.  As we continue to strive for excellence, we are confident you will find what you are looking for as you enter our library, whether physically or through our website. Should you have any requests or concerns, please bring them to our attention. We will do our best to fulfill them.

We look forward to you visiting the G.R. Little Library, and we invite you to ask questions and provide suggestions and feedback on our collections, services, and physical space. To help us continue our vision of being the best that we can be, we ask that you consider becoming a Friend of the ECSU Library. The best is yet to come.   Thank you for your continued support of the G.R. Little Library.
