Educating for change: A Vision for the Hampshire Library
The Hampshire College library is a dynamic hub of people, technology, and information that serves as an incubator of ideas across all disciplines. Educating for change demands comprehension of the past and vision for the future. The library's innovative and risk-taking intellectual environment fosters new ways of creating knowledge and understanding.
Visit us at the InfoBar on the first floor of the Harold F. Johnson Library. The InfoBar is your place to get the help you need.
Collections, as of June 2012:
The Five College integrated library system, ALEPH, from major library systems vendor Ex Libris, provides access to Hampshire's library collections as well as those of the other Five Colleges. It allows Hampshire students, faculty, and staff to request books from the other colleges to be sent to Hampshire for pickup, as well as view and/or renew the books they have checked out from each of the libraries.
Times Square is a 65" LED TV that hangs across from the circulation desk in the Harold F. Johnson Library and is meant to inform the community of upcoming events, news, and other information. Slides submitted by any and all Hampshire community members will rotate daily. This service is free to Hampshire community members.
Only landscape-oriented, 1920x1080-sized JPEGS and PDFs will be accepted. All other formats and sizes will be returned with notes on how to change a given submission.
