Welcome Back!

Welcome to the Library for what’s sure to be a great year ahead!
Linda Beninghove, Library Director
For returning students, we hope you will notice the changes we have been making to the first floor, including new paint for our north wall, more desktop computers, and new computer tables.

We are pleased to announce the addition of new collaborative technology tools throughout the Library for the fall semester.  The Library and IT surveyed Stevens students about the types of tech they need to accomplish their course work in an effort to enhance the technology options available to students in the Library.  We concluded from the survey results to acquire new SMART kapp boards, mobile display/TV carts, mobile white boards, HP Elite displays, and fast, easy connections for the LG displays.  

We invite students, faculty, and staff to come to the Library and use the new collaborative tech tools. We would like to thank the Office of the President and the Office of Information Technology for their support in helping us to bring excellent tech tools to students in the Library.  If you have any questions, please see a Library staff member and we will be happy to help. We have many exciting plans for the 2015-2016 academic year!  

  • Please join us for the Library Open House on Wednesday, September 2 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Great Hall.  
  • We welcome you to register for the Taylor’s World Conference on Thursday, September 24 and Friday, September 25 which will focus on the legacy of Stevens alumnus Frederick Winslow Taylor, Class of 1883, who is considered the father of scientific management.  
  • We will be offering more workshops to help students learn to locate and critically evaluate information in our ever-changing, fast-paced world.  
  • We’re planning more exhibits and events - please check our blog frequently and connect with us through social media for announcements!

The Library is very interested in hearing what you have to say about library space, services, resources and we hope you will contact us with any questions or feedback you have about the Library.  Contact and we will get back to you!

Best wishes for a successful and happy academic year!

Linda Beninghove
Interim Library Director
