Collections Across Campus
In addition to the main college library, there are a number of smaller collections located throughout campus that offer additional information in a number of key areas. You can see what's available through our library catalog. Books of interest at these locations should be checked out through the respective departments.
Office of Faculty Development Resource Center
The collection includes a wide variety of professional materials, including nearly 1,800 full-length works treating a wide variety of pedagogical, curricular and professional matters. The center also carries subscriptions to several periodicals, newspapers, source books and newsletters.
Office of Leadership, Student Involvement & First Year Experience
The leadership and service collection is continually being updated with the latest books on theory and practice, including books and manuals on team-building, ice-breakers, principles and ethics.
Office of Career & Professional Development
This collection contains materials related to: major exploration, the career search, graduate-studies, internships, life after SNC, non-profit volunteering and post-grad service.
Sturzl Center for Community Service & Learning
This collection contains materials related to service-learning, both academic and co-curricular. Co-curricular service-learning, illustrated by many alternative spring break programs, is concerned with raising students’ consciousness and familiarity with issues related to various communities. Academic service-learning, illustrated by student community service integrated into an academic course, utilizes the service experience as a course “text” for both academic learning and civic learning.
This collection contains materials related to the writing process: topic development; paper structure; MLA, APA and other documentation styles; ELL writing; crafting thesis statements; avoiding plagiarism; writing a business letter; creating a resume; and almost any other writing issue you can think of.
