Vanguard University’s O. Cope Budge Library

The library exists to help you succeed as a Vanguard University student. It is our mission to connect you with the resources and skills you need to learn in class and throughout the rest of your life. Vanguard's library staff have pulled together and organized information resources—in print and online—that will help you in your research and assignments. We have resources you can read for fun too!

The O. Cope Budge Library building provides a place for you to study, research, and collaborate with other students. Most importantly, the library is where you will find our library staff. Faculty-librarians are available to assist you with asking effective research questions, finding and citing resources, and using library research tools. We can also help you wade through the flood of information "out there" online, so that you can find reliable, trustworthy resources.
