Library Administration

Student studying in the library

Library Administration is dedicated to providing resources to enrich the student learning experience, encourage exploration and research at all levels, and contribute to advancements in access to scholarly resources.

Featured: The McNaughton Collection

The McNaughton collection consists of 200 popular fiction and nonfiction titles, including books on the best seller lists. These titles are located on a set of low shelves visible upon entering the library's main entrance. Every few months books are returned to the McNaughton company in exchange for new titles to keep the collection at a fairly consistent level. These books are recognizable by the light green labels that are on the lower part of the spine and wrap around the back. McNaughton books can only be checked out for a 14 day period.
