Library

The Kreitzberg Library is a full-service academic library. The Kreitzberg Library building, named for principal donors Barbara and Fred Kreitzberg (’57), offers six comfortable and attractive floors for collections, research, and study. There are spaces for individual and group study, the Todd Multipurpose Room, computer labs with access to the Norwich University network, two library instruction rooms, wireless internet throughout the building, photocopiers, scanners, and a media-viewing room.

The library collections include print books, e-books, magazines, e-journals, DVDs, streaming videos, and much more. The library is also a selective depository for federal government publications. Professional librarians and support staff offer the full range of academic library services, including reference service, interlibrary loan, and individual and group library instruction. The Kreitzberg Library’s catalog, databases, and online journals are accessible both on- and off-campus, providing easy access for students in their dormitories or across the world. The library is open seven days a week during the academic fall and spring semesters, and librarians are available in person or via email every day.

We serve all Norwich students and faculty, whether online or on-campus. Our goal is to make the research process as easy as possible.

The Kreitzberg Library for CGCS Students is our custom website for students in the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies (CGCS). Links to the Library are available via the Virtual Campus and Moodle in CGCS courses.

We strive to offer as much online content as possible and currently provide access to over 100 online databases, 78,000 full-text electronic journals, and 743,000 ebooks.

Our goal is to enable distance students to do professional and scholarly research without leaving home. We:

  • Provide journal articles not available online and print books from our collection through material request services

  • Have a dedicated team of librarians available to help seven days a week via email and throughout the week via chat and phone

  • Collaborate with CGCS to ensure needs are met — led by our Online Learning & Scholarship Librarian

Museum

The Sullivan Museum and History Center, a 16,000-square-foot modern facility, is dedicated to telling Norwich University’s story by carefully preserving the university’s rich history and growing collection of over 20,000 objects. As a teaching museum, classes from many disciplines, including history, art, English, engineering, and interdisciplinary courses, have the opportunity for hands-on learning with the collection and behind-the-scenes walkthroughs of the collections storage area. A growing number of objects are available online for research anywhere in the world through the collections management database.

Rotating exhibits at the museum have included a series on the Civil War, anniversary exhibitions for World War I and II, Norwich explorers and innovators, a cross-disciplinary exhibit for edged weapons and firearms, art exhibits featuring works by Norwich University professors and alumni. Permanent exhibits present the founding of Norwich University, the history of Norwich alumni’s involvement in major wars, historical connections to the Smithsonian Institution, and more.

The museum offers educational programming throughout the academic year, including in-person and virtual Lunch and Learns, special evening events, gallery talks or tours, and hosts many events for offices around campus.
