The Mitchell College Library is a vibrant hub for collaborative learning, information resources, technology, and highly individualized student support. If you need resources for your course work, classroom technology support, or a place to relax or study, this is the space for you. Welcome!
A Space for You
The Mitchell College library is THE place on campus for students to research, study, work, and relax. With a silent area for students who want to study individually and a collaborative space to chat and work on group projects, there’s a place for everyone. Pull up a chair to one of our Macs or PC workstations, settle into an overstuffed armchair to chat with a friend, or sip your coffee over notes as you enjoy our panoramic view of the Thames River.
Easy Access to Support
The most important resources in the library are our librarians. Highly responsive and trained in instruction, project research and design support and educational technology, they provide individualized support for Mitchell students. Beyond formal instruction, individual research appointments and scheduled support sessions, library staff is available to connect with via email, text, phone call or online chat.
Great Resources – Any Time, Anywhere
With access to millions of scholarly articles through EBSCO and Gale, tens of thousands of physical volumes, eBooks and audiobooks, and with partnerships with libraries across the state of Connecticut, the Mitchell College library supports all levels of student research and course work. Our students can access these resources from anywhere in the world with an internet connection and their student ID. Need to borrow a laptop, an iPad, or a camera for class? Come check them out at the library!
"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.
If you are looking for a college that:
Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual
Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways
Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success
Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience
Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience
Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities
Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences
Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world
Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities
