Library


Library

The William G. Squires Library is neither a shrine to the book nor a sanctuary of hushed tones. It is a place of activity, collaboration and study. It is dedicated to the active dissemination of information through service, teaching, research and learning. Its mission is to be “a vital and dynamic facet of the educational experience at Lee University.”

The library is staffed by a trained team who care deeply about helping all Lee students to be successful in their research. The library staff consists of individuals who are experts at locating the most significant sources and are eager to teach students how to search. They provide instruction individually and in classes. They work closely with the instructional faculty to secure the books and other resources required for the courses. If a student needs an item not in the collection, the library staff can borrow the item from another library.

The facility offers seating for about 250 with a mixture of individual study carrels, round group study tables and casual seating. It offers quiet study areas as well as a group study room. Including the LINK (a computer lab with 32 public computers), the library has about 65 computers that students can use to send emails, browse the internet, do research and write papers. Students can check out headphones and laptop computers for use in the library.

The library contains about 150,000 volumes and 600 periodicals. Additionally the library provides 25,000 journals available electronically through subscriptions to numerous academic databases. It also subscribes to some casual reading magazines and current newspapers.

An added feature of the building is the Dixon Pentecostal Research Center which houses the archives of the Church of God and a large special collection of materials pertaining to the many aspects of the Pentecostal/Charismatic movement.
