PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to illustrate examples of the manner by which the academic library breaks down the silos on a college campus.Design/methodology/approachLiterature review and commentary on this topic have been addressed by professionals, researchers and practitioners.FindingsOn a college campus, the value and impact of the academic library is today more than that of the standard model of libraries in which reference librarians offer available appropriate academic resources; but, the academic library is a place where the teaching and learning model of the standard model meets that of the support model to provide its users the best service by incorporating both aspects of the service.Originality/valueThe significance in exploring this topic is to provide evidence by which the academic library can and does offer a multitude of services that it can serve as the literal and physical center of a college campus.
