Creative Conversations

Join us on Thursday February 5th, at 3-3:50 p.m. in the Library Reading Room, to hear University President Dan Martin discuss his new book Rich Soil: Transforming Your Organization's Landscape for Maximum Effectiveness. Bring your curiosity and join in conversations about the discovery, creation, and sharing of knowledge. Light snacks will be provided.

Special Display

Having Tent City 3 on campus this winter gives us all the opportunity to think deeply about homelessness. The SPU Library has many items that address this important issue. Some of these items are currently on display on a table to the right as you enter the Library.

Course Reserves

Course reserves are held at the Circulation Desk. Find reserve items by clicking the "Course Reserves" tab in the blue box at the top of the Library home page. Search by your instructor or course. Bring the call number of the item you'd like to check out to the front desk and a student worker will pull it off the reserves shelves for you. Remember, most reserve items need to stay in the Library and can only be checked out for a few hours.
