The Jennie King Mellon Library’s mission is to advance the academic endeavors of Chatham University students, faculty, and staff by:

  • Acquiring, organizing, preserving, promoting and providing access to resources that meet our community's diverse and changing research needs;
  • Offering timely reference assistance and expert instruction that fosters information competency;
  • Collaborating with Chatham faculty and staff to help students develop progressively complex critical thinking and research skills in the pursuit of scholarly achievement and life-long learning;
  • Maintaining a virtual and physical environment conducive to teaching and learning;
  • Encouraging and sustaining a high level of service by our staff.







  • Please consult the Borrowing Policies chart to determine loan times, fines, and other information based on your status.

The University Archives housed in the Jennie King Mellon Library at Chatham University serves to collect, preserve, and make available records and information of continuing value to the Chatham community. These materials document the history and growth of Chatham University from a small women's college to a thriving coeducational institution and highlight the activities of Chatham's faculty, staff, students, and alumni. In support of the university's educational mission, we strive to work closely with faculty and provide students with opportunities to learn about the research value of archival materials.

The mission of Special Collections is to identify, preserve, and provide access to and reference assistance for rare, fragile, and unique materials held by the Jennie King Mellon Library, including materials of considerable scholarly, cultural, or monetary value. The mission of library staff in acquiring and maintaining these materials is to support research and instruction at Chatham University as well as the integrity of our subject specific collections.
