Mission & Vision


The Los Angeles Trade Technical College Library supports LATTC College’s Mission. We assist in “preparing our students to participate effectively in our democratic society.”

The mission of the library is to serve the college community by evaluating, collecting, organizing, preserving, and providing access to vital resources of information, both print and electronic, in direct support of the curriculum and academic programs of the college. Our primary goal is to achieve excellence in the provision and promotion of information services to meet the teaching and learning needs of the College. In addition, we encourage and facilitate information competency, critical thinking, intellectual independence, and life-long learning skills in all students, regardless of their educational goals. As such the library serves as a center for the college community for learning, exploration, and discovery. The Library acts as an archive of the collective past of the college, provides access to current information, and represents a portal to the future.


Upgrading the library educational and technology resources is a campus priority. The vision of the library is to integrate current library and information technologies impacting education, learning, and information competency into our library collection, policies, and instructional programs.
