Knight-Capron Library: Mission & Vision

Library Mission & Vision


The Knight-Capron Library provides information resources, services, and spaces to support the University of Lynchburg community.


The Knight-Capron Library supports the active learning community of the University of Lynchburg with:

  • Exceptional collections
  • Outstanding information literacy instruction
  • Dynamic services and outreach
  • Student-centered spaces
  • Engaged and accessible staff


Welcome to Knight-Capron Library.  We are excited to meet you and help you access the information and resources you need.

The library is a physical space in which our print and media collections are housed, and where you can find a quiet place to study or a central spot for collaboration, but what we have to offer is not limited to inside the building. Many of our electronic information resources are available from anywhere, with technology you already have.

The library is also an online collection of resources such as databases, tutorials and our Digital Showcase, a repository of student and faculty publications. Access is available from our webpage and we are available to answer your questions and help you get connected.  

Our greatest resource is a dedicated staff who look forward to providing user-friendly assistance to students and faculty in the pursuit of life-long learning.

Of course we would like to meet you in person, but if that's not convenient you can reach us by email (,
chat (434-264-5513), or on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).

Please send comments or suggestions to me at or 544-8432.


Jenny Horton
Director of the Library
