The Edsel Ford Memorial Library provides students with a wealth of research tools — and an ideal place for both individual and group study.
In addition to cozy armchairs and quiet study carrels, the library offers ample space for collaborative work: a smart classroom, a media viewing room, and several meeting (group study) rooms. Wireless computer access is available throughout the building, and students can check out a variety of equipment, such as computers, calculators, and cameras.
Other library services:
- Departmental Liaison Program
- Research Consultations
- Interlibrary Loans
- Spaces to study, meet, and socialize
- Classrooms and viewing rooms
- Maker Gear (poster printer, laser cutter, CNC router, sticker maker)
- Children's Library
Beyond the library’s collection of books and multimedia, students can access a wide range of online databases for research. Each academic department has a designated librarian to help students make the most of the library’s resources, and a knowledgeable staff is available during library hours to provide assistance.
Like the Hotchkiss campus, the Edsel Ford Memorial Library is closed to the public. Only Library staff can access the Library collection.
Requests for all Library materials should be made via bearcat.hotchkiss.org.
Archives and Special Collections are available for questions. For a deeper dive, students and faculty should look at A&SC's exhibit page.
