The Library supports MAICh’s educational mission of providing access to information resources and services to meet the needs of students, researchers and staff.  It is also open to the general public as a reading library. 

Its collections contains books, journals, reference works and e-resources that focus on agriculture, horticulture, agricultural economics, environmental management, food quality and chemistry of natural products.
