The academic library is fundamental to all institutions of higher learning. Students conducting research at Newberry College have full access to the library’s print and electronic holdings including reference and print books, scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers, and DVDs. Online databases provide up-to-date information 24/7 across all academic disciplines and are accessible through the Wessels Library website. Students are also able to request information to support their research from most academic institutions in South Carolina through PASCAL, a borrowing and delivery agreement with those colleges.
Computer workstations are provided throughout the library for student use, and wireless internet access is available throughout the facility. Students seeking the best study environment to meet their needs will find a busy Learning Commons with worktables and comfortable seating, single-student desks in the stacks, and a quiet commons area on the lower floor with quiet group study rooms as well. Experienced library staff members are available to provide direction and answers to students’ questions.
