Asnuntuck Library

The Asnuntuck library promotes the development of lifelong information literacy, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills by providing multiple access points to intellectually and culturally appropriate materials for the college and surrounding communities. Library patrons will know that they can find what they are looking for in any library, that a library today is much larger than the space it inhabits, and that it is a friendly place with helpful staff.

Qualitative Data from Students, Faculty, and Staff

Not only has the Asnuntuck library provided me with the educational resources and materials I need to succeed in my courses, but it's also a place I found serious comfort being in. The library staff were always willing and able to help by either offering a quiet space to work, giving useful feedback for projects and papers, or just facilitating that much needed social connection through polite conversation. Being in the library made me feel like an important part of my school community. Working in the library taught me organizational, leadership, and customer service skills that have been essential to my personal and professional success. I can't stress enough the positive impact the Asnuntuck library has had on me as a student/student-worker.

Our librarians introduce students to information literacy and library resources with the energy and enthusiasm of dedicated educators. My students print their papers in the Library and I hold meetings with students in the Library. Economically disadvantaged students check out required course text from the Library. My Film Study and Appreciate class relies entirely on the Library's catalog of physical media as well as its digital database subscriptions. The Asnuntuck Library and its wonderful staff support and enrich my courses, my students' work, and our campus atmosphere.

Asnuntuck’s library provides valuable research help, whether it’s for academic papers, supporting initiatives on campus or simply learning more about the world around you. As a student worker in the library, I consistently see students finding moments of focus, studying, taking tests, or doing homework.The library’s new collections, catered specifically towards teachers and the LGBTQIA+ community, provide useful information and create a welcoming environment. As a brief rest-area in-between classes or to find resources, the library never fails to show its value to Asnuntuck’s essence.

The collaboration between Library Services and the Teaching and Learning Center has proven to be a catalyst for positive change and their alignment has yielded transformative results. The innovative wipe board wall fosters collaborative learning, providing a dynamic space for ideas to flourish. The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) LibGuide empowers students, faculty and staff with diverse resources, enhancing cultural competence. Various joint activities bridge academic support and resource accessibility, cultivating a vibrant educational environment. This collaboration not only enriches the learning experience but also underscores the library's commitment to inclusivity and educational excellence.
