Library Services

The Stevenson University Library staff is committed to assisting SU students and faculty with their research, teaching, and learning needs.

The library is available electronically through the library home page and at two convenient campus locations, Greenspring and Owings Mills. Through such databases as JSTOR, ARTstor, Lexis-Nexis, Science Direct, ebrary, Films on Demand, and Business Source Complete, students enjoy access to more than 70,000 full-text magazines, journals, and newspapers, and over 200,000 eBooks as well as high-quality images and streaming video. All resources can be searched remotely. OneSearch on the library home page makes it easy for researchers to find books, articles, and other resources through a single search box.

The Greenspring Campus library holds the bulk of our print and film collections. The Stevenson University Archives are housed in the GS library as well as a Children’s Collection for Education students. Print resources at the Owings Mills Library focus on the areas of study within the School of Business, including law, business, and information technology. There is a browsing collection at each location for leisure reading.

Stevenson University researchers also have access to close to one million volumes through the library’s membership in the Maryland Interlibrary Consortium (MIC), which includes four area college and university libraries. Students can request books through the local catalog (SHARC) and the items will be delivered to the Greenspring and Owings Mills campuses within 24-48 hours of request. Inter-library loan is also available.

Knowledgeable and friendly library staff members stand ready to help Stevenson University students find reliable resources appropriate for their assignments. Reference and research services are available in person, by phone, and electronically via text, chat, and email. Through AskUsNow, Stevenson students have live chat access to a librarian 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Students also have a choice of study environments at both library locations, with wireless network access, individual study carrels, and listening/viewing rooms. They also have group study areas, computer lab/library instruction classrooms, and quiet study areas. There are 56 public computers at the Greenspring Campus Library and 32 at Owings Mills. Both locations feature Macs and PCs. Students can scan documents or print in color at each library location.

During the regular semester, the Greenspring Campus library is open Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.; Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; and Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The campus shuttle stops right in front of the library. The Owings Mills Library opens at noon on Sunday, remaining open continuously until 8:00 p.m. on the following Friday, and during the day on Saturday. Close to the residence halls, the OM Library is a great place to study or do research. Visit the Stevenson University Library website for the latest information regarding library hours and services:
