Where students like to study

The libraries at Bowdoin, including the Hawthorne-Longfellow (H-L), Hatch Science, Pierce Art and the Beckwith Music libraries and the Language Media Center, offer a myriad of student study spaces. Some are in sunny, open spaces with lounge chairs and sofas, others are quiet carrels in the H-L basement. Or you might like studying in the vending cafe (also in the H-L basement) the technology-intensive group studies (throughout H-L; you can book online) or the notoriously quiet 6th floor of Hubbard Hall.

Where’s your favorite study space?

Welcome to Our Blog!


We are so glad you’re coming to Bowdoin. We’ve created this blog to introduce us to each other:  for the rest of the summer and fall, we’ll be adding weekly posts to help you get acquainted with the Library.  We’ll include some “Three Questions For…” interviews with current students and Library staff, and highlight some research resources.

And we hope to hear from you: in the gray box to the left are links to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.  Visit the site often or create an RSS feed to keep learning more about us and the services we have to offer before and after you arrive.  Enjoy!
