Who are we?
Sarah Sanfilippo: Library Director Contact me for purchasing suggestions, library policies, library instruction, research help, library work study opportunities.
Andrea Robare: Reference Librarian Contact me for research guidance, database assistance, interlibrary loan, library instruction.
When are we here? Sarah and Andrea are in the Library between 8 AM and 5 PM Monday through Friday. Stop in and see us, or make an appointment if you want to make sure we're here when you come. The Library is also open at night and on weekends, and staffed by students when we're not here. For our current hours, see the Hours tab at the top of the page.
Why are we here? Andrea and Sarah are here to guide you through using all the resources available to you through SVC's library and on the Internet. We don't expect you to be expert researchers the first time you sit down and start a paper. We don't even expect seniors to know everything! Even we as librarians are constantly learning new skills. We can help you get started, or help you expand or narrow your research. We can even point you to resources that will help you narrow or expand on a topic.
The SVC Library collection can provide you with print books and journals, as well as a great number of electronic resources. We can help you find material from other colleges as well. We can also help you find books to read for fun. If you want assistance with ANY kind of searching, please come see us.
If you have ideas about what we should be buying, please let us know!
Your library account
Yes, you have a library account! You can look on our web site to:
- See what books you have checked out
- See your due dates
- Renew items
- Place holds on checked-out books so you can borrow them next
Your login is a system-generated number which you probably don't know - contact a librarian to set up a user ID and PIN you will remember.
Textbooks in the Library!
Thanks to the Meder Discovery Fund, we are able to purchase most textbooks for use inside the library.
Now you don't have to lug around that huge Med-Surg book - just come read in the library in between classes! Check the list below to see what we have this semester.
If you don't have time to stay in the library, you can make copies or scan on our copier/printer.
