The Waidner-Spahr Library supports the Dickinson College community in teaching, learning, scholarship, and service activities by facilitating access to information in all formats. Our strong collections and personalized services enhance research, study and community. Our information literacy program teaches the critical approaches to information necessary for academic success, professional accomplishment, and lifelong learning. Our welcoming building spaces reflect the role of the library as the place where the disciplines meet.
Dickinson’s historic campus may be rooted in the past, but it’s also wired into the future. From geographic information systems (GIS) to the high-speed network that enables discussions to continue long after class, the college provides faculty, students and staff with the technology resources they need to excel.
