Welcome to the Library. I encourage you to explore the information gathered on this page for an overview of the services and resources available to you. Your research librarian will be glad to answer any questions you might have and please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance in making your first year a successful one.

First Stops:

Your research librarian is available to answer any questions you might have regarding the services and resources of the Library even before you arrive on campus. Each academic department is assigned a librarian who provides specialized reference and instruction services and assists in building collections to support your teaching and research and student learning. Your liaison looks forward to partnering with you to develop information research instruction sessions for your students and to ensure that we have the collections you need for your fall classes.

The Library website is your digital gateway to the myriad resources available to you at our five campus locations and from the comfort of your office. It links you to CBBcat, the shared Colby, Bates and Bowdoin library catalog, digital research content, as well as information on all of our services. Also watch this page for Library news and events.
