Welcome to the Henry Whittemore Library! We have a lot to offer you. The Library staff and I are committed to serving the research needs of the campus community by providing access to resources through collection development and cooperative efforts. We are committed to assisting library users in making the transition from print to electronic information by teaching the necessary skills to navigate the expanding knowledge base. We advocate new models of service that use technology and advances partnerships with faculty to promote information literacy. Librarians are able to provide links to the past and pathways to the future by playing a role in guiding on and off campus library users through the maze of available information.
The Library provides a combination of print and electronic resources to the University's students, faculty, and staff. Local holdings include over 175,000 books and multi-media resources, approximately 300 periodicals, and 600,000 units of microforms. These core resources support the curricula of all academic departments at the University and are systematically updated with new acquisitions selected by professional staff and requested by faculty and students.
