To provide quality information resources, services, and expertise, and to create an inviting and stimulating intellectual center as the foundation for the teaching, learning, and research activities at the State University of New York College at Oneonta.

Will the proposed project make use of library resources?

Milne Library has a wealth of physical and online resources to support research. Including specific library resources you plan to use in your research will demonstrate that some preliminary investigation into the research topic has already begun. Some helpful places to begin your search:
