Sinclair’s Library provides an exciting mix of student friendly learning and social spaces, computers and information technology, and traditional library resources in a single facility with a unique academic ambience. It is a user-friendly environment that includes comfortable places to meet friends, quiet rooms for individual and group study, both formal and informal learning spaces, and even a cup of world famous coffee. See below for additional information on some of these Library resources.
Librarians assist students in obtaining information and using course reserves for papers, readings, and more. The IT computer lab staff provide friendly, expert help in using the Library’s many computers and working with many different software programs. Sinclair’s Library staff also work with faculty to develop and continuously improve collections and access to digital publications, to meet curricular and accreditation needs, and to assure student access to the information resources needed to be successful learners.
Students and faculty with Internet access at home or work can connect to library resources at any time, 24/7. In addition, because Sinclair is a member of OhioLINK, students can borrow items from colleges and universities across Ohio, either online or by visiting other campuses and using their Tartan Card. Sinclair’s Library is both an outstanding facility for learning and student success as well as an extended digital library capable of supporting the college’s many academic programs.
