Library Services

Welcome to the Littman Library - the only branch library on campus located in the Hillier College of Architecture and Design building. The main Van Houten Library is located in the Central Avenue building (#30 on the campus map).
 
The Littman Library website provides extensive information about our resources and services.
You can also contact a librarian:

Faculty can schedule a consultation with a librarian to learn more about library services, policies, and collections.

  • Ask a librarian to design a research guide/tutorial for your course.
  • Those who use Moodle can request information literacy materials to be included in the course management system for your particular class.
  • Request a demonstration on how to use any discipline-specific database.
  • Alerting service: ask Maya to be notified about new titles as they arrive. Also, you might want to attend "Tea in the Library" events to evaluate new acquisitions.
