The mission of the Stony Brook University Libraries’ Global Initiatives is to strengthen international ties among libraries and librarians worldwide for the promotion of international education, understanding, and peace. We strive to promote student and faculty achievement and preparation for global competitiveness in collaboration with Stony Brook University academic and clinical centers abroad.
