The Ricklefs library houses a robust and diverse collection of about 12,000 volumes, including award-winning fiction, nonfiction and popular reading, as well as a growing collection of several hundred DVDs and videos. We subscribe to over 40 periodicals, ranging from The Economist to Backpacker and Wired. At Ricklefs we welcome respectful group collaboration and also provide the Hsu Study Room for those who need silent study space. The library of the Information Age has no walls and serves as an electronic portal 24/7. Through our databases, students may access millions of articles in scholarly publications and newspapers at any time without leaving their residences.
The library staff is here to assist students and faculty. We also welcome email with your questions or requests to renew or check out a book. Throughout the academic year, the librarian teaches information literacy and research skills that dovetail with the academic coursework at Stevenson. By graduation, students are adept at utilizing the tools and strategies needed for research and study expected in college, and beyond.
