Our American tradition of freedom and justice, of respect for learning
and each individual, and of rule by law and reason demands that each
generation learn these values anew. The bastions of these values are our
great universities, and the most precious part of the universities is their
libraries, where the knowledge and wisdom of all mankind is available.

- R. Lee Hornbake
