Director's Welcome

The Library is the window into research and knowledge exploration for the faculty and students of Siena College. The Library has an extensive collection of books, journals, audiovisual materials, special collections and archival materials tailored for our mission and educational programs. The Library’s web pages offer Internet access to our public catalog as well as e-books, electronic journals, and other web resources, most requiring authentication. The Reference Center is open seven days per week during academic terms to assist researchers with finding information and using our collections.

The Library staff welcomes visitors to our beautiful facility. We hope that you will use our services and collections for your educational benefit. We ask that you show respect to the fellow Library patrons by abiding by the rules regarding use of materials, use of the facilities, and use of cell phones, computers and other electronic devices. To borrow materials, a patron must be a Siena student, faculty member or staff member, or must have a Direct Access Card, which can be obtained at their affiliated local public or academic library.

We welcome suggestions from our patrons about our collections and services and how we may improve them to better serve our educational mission.

Director of Library and Audiovisual Services
