Books

eBooks

The Library owns five eBook Collections. Students, faculty, and staff may access these collection off-campus with their email username and password.

Children's Books

Children's book are located on the second level next to the elevator. We primarily purchase award winning titles. 

The Children's Books Research Guide features selected books from the collection and sorts the books into categories such as ABCs, Multicultural, and Health & Safety. 

Graphic Novels

Graphic novels can be fiction, non-fiction, history, fantasy, or anything in-between. Graphic novels are similar to comic books because they use sequential art to tell a story. 

The Graphic Novel collection is located on the second floor, South end.  It is in the lounge area. 

The Graphic Novels research guide not provides a list of titles owned but also additional information on the history of graphic novels, web comics, and information on creating your own comic or graphic novel. 

Reference

The reference collection is located on the second level across from the stair case. These books cannot be borrowed. Visitors may copy reference books as long as they follow the U.S. copyright laws. The copier is located on the first level across from the Day Librarian's office. It's 10 cents per page.

Young Adult

Young adult (YA) fiction is a category of fiction written for readers from 12 to 18 years of age. While the genre is targeted to adolescents, approximately half of YA readers are adults. The subject matter and genres of YA correlate with the age and experience of the protagonist.

The Young Adult collection is located upstairs in the south end of the library. Most YA fiction falls under the call number PZ 7.
