Members of the Stevens community of faculty, staff, and researchers are entitled to take advantage of the Library’s features and resources. Off-campus access will require logging in with your myStevens username and password (or click the Library Databases link on the myStevens homepage).
Books & Ebooks
While the Library holds thousands of books and ebooks on subjects relevant to Stevens’ academic departments, we also carry a rotating collection of novels, available to check out for the same 28-day period with possible renewals as most of our other books. These are found on the second floor in a spinner. Use the library catalog to look up a book (or article).
If you want to borrow a particular book or audiovisual material that we don’t carry, please request it from the Interlibrary Loan department.
Journals & Newspapers
The Library subscribes to thousands of journals, including many in the professional fields of Higher Education and Educational Administration. If you’re looking for a particular journal, use the Journal Finder.
Or, if you’d like to browse, the databases ERIC (Educational Resource Information Clearinghouse) and ProQuest Central both have a strong focus on education. For example, the Chronicle of Higher Education can be found in ProQuest, and is also available in print in the Library (Sam’s Place). Note: If you are off-campus, you can log in to these databases either via myStevens (the Library Databases link on the myStevens homepage) or individually by clicking on a database link from the Databases A-Z page.
You are also welcome to come and borrow a print copy of the New York Times or the Wall Street Journal, available daily at the Library’s circulation desk, to be read in the Library building (or find these online in the Journal Finder!).
The Library building is available to the Stevens community for events and meetings:
To reserve conference room 208-B for meetings, go to the University Events’ Events Management System calendar.
To inquire about booking the Great Hall for an event, contact the Library Director, Linda Beninghove.
Study rooms, including one in the Burchard Lounge, are also available for individual use or meetings of up to 10 people, and can be reserved on the study room website.
Technology Use and Lending
Borrow iPads and laptops from the circulation desk. Throughout the building are Smart Kapp interactive whiteboards that enable you to share a whiteboard with others via an app. Public computer terminals are always available for use.
Printers and copiers are connected to the public terminals or you can bring your own laptop and download the printer drivers to print directly from your computer (PC only). Fees are paid via Duckbills on your campus ID, and there is a machine in the library to add cash to your account. The scanners can be used for free.
Stevens Archives & Special Collections
The Archive rooms devoted to the Frederick W. Taylor Collection and the Lieb Vinciana Collection of books about Leonardo da Vinci, as well as the Mary Stuart Stevens room and Stevens Family archives, can be toured by members of the Stevens community. Head of Archives and Special Collections Leah Loscutoff is available to schedule a tour.
You can also request a digitized copy of an image from the Stevens collections to hang in your department office. Ask Leah for suggestions!
Events at the Library
The Library schedules various events throughout the year, which can be found on our calendar. We’d love to see you there!
