The Schafer Family Library is a critical resource for teaching and for learning. A team of experienced librarians support students’ curricular, research, and recreational reading needs through the use of rich digital resources and a vast print collection. Students not only have access to on-campus resources, but can tap into additional resources through inter-library loans as well as a library loan program through Dartmouth College. The Library also provides a valuable gathering space where students find time for personal and collaborative study, all set amid scenic mountain views.
