Why Use the Library

At a college, the library provides access to resources such as books, e-books, articles and media to support your learning.

  • If you need clarification about something you are learning in a class, chances are the library has some information to help explain it further.
  • If you are asked to write a paper or create a presentation using sources other than your textbook, the library provides access to those sources.
  • The library provides information to help you with your personal education and career goals.

The library also provides a learning space to support your study needs.
