The four apps are:

BookMyne – use this app to access and search our library catalog. You can also scan a book’s barcode and check BookMyne to see if we own it.


EBSCOhost Mobile – use this app to search for sources for your research. You will need to re-authenticate your access every 9 months.



Gale Mobile – use this app to search for sources for your research. You will need to re-authenticate your access about every 12 months.


Britannica Mobile – use this app to search for ready-reference information about a broad range of topics, all from your mobile device!


New vending machine in the library!

The Sullivan Library is proud to introduce a new vending machine outside of the Learning Commons. The theme of this vending machine is “Healthy Choices”, with options like veggie straws, vitamin water, V8 juice drinks, Nature Valley granola bars, and more!

Our healthy vending machine with many great snacking options!

To reach this vending machine, simply take the elevator within the library down to the lower level. Immediately after exiting the elevator, you will see it. These great vending options are available whenever the library is open, even if the Learning Commons itself is closed.
