The library is the school’s primary academic resource center. It houses a collection of approximately 20,000 print, audiovisual, and web-based subscription services. We subscribe to approximately 100 magazines and seven daily newspapers and provide access to online subscription resources such as JSTOR, ProQuest’s Historical Newspapers, CQ Research, Annals of American History, and many more. Suffield’s library has recently expanded with the addition of 60,000 digital volumes in ebrary

The library is a quiet place for students to study, read, and relax. Lists of new books and new DVDs are posted online at least once a month. Students are encouraged to stop by regularly to check out featured displays, including our popular READ posters featuring Suffield faculty. Audiovisual equipment is available for loan, and students are encouraged to take advantage of our collection of digital and video cameras, projectors, DVDs, and CDs. The Library’s web-based catalog can be accessed remotely to check for material availability.
