Get to Know Mahoney

The library is both a physical place and a 24/7 digital toolkit. The building houses the Library, the Conklin Academic Success Center, Accessibility Services, and the College Archives. The Reference room of the library occupies the main floor along with the Academic Success Center. On the main floor you'll find the circulation desk, the research help desk, our collections of encyclopedias and print periodicals. The upper level is where the book collection, rare book room, and college archives all live.

Digitally, the website connects you to over 100 specialized research databases, with millions of full text peer-reviewed articles, ready to use.
