Did you know the Librarians work with faculty to develop Class Guides for courses with research assignments? You can find a list here.

Class Guides point students to the best resources to get started with their research assignments.

If you don't see your class listed, let us know and we will create a guide for it!

Board Games

Over the summer, the Library added several new and exciting board game titles. For your entertainment, we are now circulating three new Cards Against Humanity expansion packs plus several new board games including Game of Thrones, Hanabi, Pandemic, and The Walking Dead. Be sure to check out our new Xbox and Wii games, too!

Welcome, Lisa Castellano!

Hello! I am Lisa Castellano the new Evening & Weekend Librarian. At the Library I will be supervising the Check Out desk, keeping all the magazines and journals up-to-date, and teaching information literacy classes (so you may see me in your class!). I moved here from Asheville, North Carolina where I hiked, ate, drank, and worked in the community college library for the last five years. I earned my Master of Library Science in December 2013 from North Carolina Central University. Originally I was born and raised in Homestead-Miami, Florida and obtained my BA in Anthropology from the University of Central Florida in Orlando. I am a self-described "food nerd" and love to sample new, odd, and different cuisines; the more imaginative the better! I am a night owl and love to help people, so come see me for all your late night library needs!

Library Changes

As you may have noticed, a few changes have taken place around the Johnson and Wales campus. As the Student Center is being closed for renovations, Campus Security has relocated their headquarters to the hallway on the right hand side of the Library doors. The campus bookstore has also been moved and is now neighboring the Library. It may be accessed through a door on the right side of Legacy Hall, behind the stairs. Because of this change, the study carrolls in the back of the library are no longer present. Lab 4, however, can be used as Quiet Study Space when classes are not in session. We appreciate your understanding, and please know that the Library remains an excellent place to put in some study time.

New Databases

A database is one of many online worlds of knowledge available to students in the form of e-books, streaming videos, articles, and other electronic resources. The Library provides students with many databases that offer general- or degree-specific information. This year we've added a few new databases.

Did You Know?

Our big and beautiful Oversize Book Collection can now be found to the left of the Check Out Desk. Books this large and in charge deserve their own special space outside of our ordinary stacks, so go and explore our many titles, and be sure to take a look at some of the new ones added this year!
