Welcome back to Sullivan Library!

Dominican College students and staff helping after Superstorm Sandy

For those students who are new to Sullivan Library, we have a downloadable Quick Guide to the Sullivan Library which lists our hours, phone number, and other FAQ-type questions. If you are working on a project, we recommend our subject guides which list databases to find journal articles in, websites to look at, reference resources at the library, and more. We also have a map and directions (.pdf) to the library.

Some good links to bookmark on your personal computer include the database sign-in page, our books catalog, a listing of the library’s YouTube videos, our hours, librarian and staff contact information, the list of workshops offered in the Spring and Fall (when available), research handouts (APA/MLA guides, EBSCOhost searching guides, and more!), and our Internet resources page. If you want to keep up with the latest news and information coming from the library, feel free to subscribe to The Veritas Blog hosted on WordPress.
