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.
