One of the most open and freely accessible spaces on campus, the library provides an arena for individual and group study, research, reflection and peer tutoring. In the library, students and faculty access a broad scope of ideas and resources to explore academic and personal interests. The Lovejoy Library supports the learning needs of the Proctor community with a diverse online and print collection, a knowledgeable staff, and a flexible learning environment.
With library support of research methods, all are encouraged to explore, problem solve, evaluate, reflect and share their learning in preparation for the world ahead of them. To foster the community’s interest in reading and cultural exploration, the library maintains a fiction collection, sponsors book discussions and a variety of additional programming. The rotating exhibit of original artwork inspires contemplation of the arts as well as significant issues and ideas that help connect Proctor’s values and curriculum. Correlating library materials are displayed and available to support further investigation around the themes of the exhibits.
