Library Overview

The Fountainhead library is located in the back of the student breakroom. Just outside the library on the left is a bookcart with free (outdated and duplicate) books for anyone to take home. 


Outside the library on the right is the New Book Cart, with the latest library books available.


Any book or periodical can be checked out with the self-check form on the New Book Cart; please follow instructions on the form. The loan period is three weeks for books or media, one week for periodicals; all items can be renewed.

How to Find Books and Other Materials

Use the online catalog (available only within the building by laptop, not by mobile device) to search for an item by title, author or subject. Note the call no. to find it on the shelves. 


The call no. sequence begins on the left-hand wall and continues clockwise around the room, followed by a Reference section (books such as encyclopedias and dictionaries, to be consulted but not checked out). 


To the right of the Reference section is the Historical Collection (books of historical but not current interest, which must be used in the library), arranged by call no. and marked “HIST COLL” on the spine.

Periodicals (magazines and journals) are located on the shelf to the right front of the room, and arranged alphabetically by title.”
