Why seek information and resources from other libraries?
While the Lyman Beecher Brooks Library offers a wide variety of resources to suit your research needs, we also understand that students may also need resources that are difficult to provide remotely.
This guide will also help you locate libraries near you that can supplement the extensive resources already provided to you by the Lyman Beecher Brooks Library.
Follow the instructions below:
