About the Greenfield Library
The library’s collection exists to support the St. John’s College Program. The general collection consists of over 102,000 books, sound recordings of faculty lectures, videos of classic films, and print and electronic periodicals. The major part of the collection consists of primary texts. Selected critical works on the Program authors also are acquired and placed in the collection. Additionally, the library has carefully selected periodicals and journals to augment the Program needs. Electronic and print resources are both available. The library has archives and special collections consisting of college records, personal papers, rare books, and realia. Arrangements and permission to use the archives and special collections are made during the regular week schedule with the college librarian.
