If we are successful, the library will be a hub for socially engaged artists, designers, and educators in Baltimore, creating a more equitable world. The library's core values are to be innovative, inclusive, and investigative.
Our values are: Innovative, Inclusive, & Investigative
We provide a welcoming space for learning, inspiration, and discovery.
We are partners with faculty in student learning, specifically relating to information literacy.
We help anyone in the MICA community find what they are looking for.
We are Decker Library!
- To become a participatory library, where conversations in physical and digital spaces create knowledge that is beneficial to the MICA community.
- To practice critical librarianship, where we help our community develop critical thinking skills, provide information literacy instruction, promote being an engaged citizen, and critique power and privilege, including developing antiracist frameworks.
- To become a beta space that allows for the prototyping of new and iterative ideas.
- To be in partnership with campus units to better support learning.
