Some 247,000 materials comprise our core collection.

The Heart of Our Collection

Our core collection is comprised of nearly 250,000 hard copy and electronic books, journals and other media. All of these items can be found through the library catalog

This collection forms the basis for our library, and has been built over the years through suggestions from librarians, faculty, staff and students. We also grow the collection of materials by referring to general recommendations for college libraries and specialized subject lists and indexes. 

We always welcome thoughtful proposals for materials that fit the curricular focus of our core collection.
