The CT State Northwestern Library is here to serve the information needs of our faculty and staff. We offer a wide array of resources and services to better serve our campus community. Located in the Learning Resource Center, the Northwestern Library is a modern facility that serves the Northwestern community as well as the greater community of Litchfield County and beyond.
CT State Northwestern Library Staff
Faculty members may schedule time to come to the library classroom and have a librarian introduce students to research methods and library resources.
Information Literacy is the heart of the mission of the Northwestern Library. Information Literacy Instruction (ILI) is the practical outcome of this mission. Library staff is dedicated to providing thorough instruction tailored to the needs of classes and individual students.
Library or faculty-owned materials may be placed in the Reserve Collection at the request of faculty members and are used only by students. These materials circulate for one of four loan periods: in-library use only, overnight, 2-day or 7-day. Faculty and students may access the Reserve Collection at the Front Desk. Items may be found in the Library’s online catalog. For more information, please contact Ann Marie Hyres, 860.738.6479.
Interlibrary loan is a privilege extended to current Northwestern students, faculty, and staff who have first exhausted this library’s resources. For a special item not available at our library or through our CSCU consortium, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) allows you to borrow items from us that we obtain for you from other libraries. Guest patrons with interlibrary loan needs are referred to their public libraries for assistance.
Please allow a minimum of ten business days for fulfillment of loan requests. For more information, please contact Jeremy Withnell, 860.738.6478.
