5 Things You Need to Know About the Calvin Coolidge Library

  1. We absolutely love information literacy!

Helping students with their academic research and teaching them how to find, critically evaluate, and effectively use a variety of information resources is our main objective.

2. We provide access to a variety of wonderful library resources.

We hold more than 147,000 volumes and over 100 print subscriptions, and provide online access to the full text of over 41,000 periodicals. We also offer Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services! This means we can borrow materials from other libraries for you to use.

3. We can help you with your research.

Contact us or make an individual appointment to discuss your research needs.

4. We offer course reserves.

Your professors can place course materials (library books, personal books, DVDs, and copies of articles or readings) on reserve for student use in the library. Check with your professor or at the Circulation Desk!

5. We want your suggestions about resources.

While we can’t purchase every resource, we want to hear from you about your needs.
