Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is here to facilitate your studies in a variety of ways. We maintain a comfortable, quiet study space, provide access to program readings and online databases, and offer interlibrary loan services. Feel free to stop by the circulation desk to request a tour or brief orientation to our services. In addition to supporting the academic life of the college, we also offer other resources that nurture your interests beyond the classroom. These include an eclectic DVD collection and a range of print journals, as well as hands-on activities such as book repair and book-making.
