| Our department library contains over 200 titles, including
works by faculty members, textbooks used for courses, and classics of
the discipline. In addition, we have hard copies of stuent dissertations
dating back to 1956.
During the first three weeks of each quarter, Kirsten Wellman will pull all books being used in conjunction with courses. These
copies are available only to professors, teaching assistants, and graders.
Our course-specific library page lists the texts that are traditionally
used with each course. Be advised that these books are not available to
students while the course is being taught.
If you are a professor, teaching assistant, or grader,
please be sure to sign out course-specific books. A sign-out sheet is
kept next to the course books. Do not take a book without signing the
sheet or checking it out with Kirsten. We keep track of books by copy number
(denoted as "c. 1," "c. 2," etc, on the top of each
copy). Be sure to sign out the same copy you take.
The rest of the department library is always available
to students and faculty. Books may be checked out on a quarterly basis.
You can browse our holdings on our general-reference library page or by
looking at the printed listing in the "Library Catalog" binder
in Jones 222. You can browse dissertations on our dissertations
page. Dissertations are not available for check-out, but can be read
If you wish to sign a book out, please sign out the
book in person or send an email to Kirsten Wellman before
taking the book. The library is here for your reference. Feel free to
use it. Just be sure to sign out anything you take and treat the books
