Library services at Stevenson University are available virtually through the Library webpage and at two campus locations, Greenspring and Owings Mills. The library offers students access to over 60 databases, featuring the full text of electronic journals, magazines, newspapers, and more. A few of the databases to which the Stevenson University Library subscribes include JSTOR, Lexis-Nexis Academic, Business Source Complete, The Baltimore Sun, Material Connexion, and Science Direct. Approximately 28,000 full text magazines, journals, and newspapers are also available, and over 78,000 eBooks form a significant academic resource for students and faculty. Most of these electronic resources are searchable from home or office. The OneSearch tool, available from the Library website as well as the Portal page, enables researchers to easily find books, articles and more through a single search box.
Traditional collections are housed mainly at the Greenspring Campus Library. The Brown School of Business and Leadership library at Owings Mills also houses materials in paralegal studies, business, forensic studies, information technology, and related disciplines, as well as leisure reading selections.
Stevenson University researchers also have access to over a million volumes through the library’s membership in the Maryland Interlibrary Consortium (MIC), shared by five area college and university libraries. Students can request materials through the local catalog (SHARC) and nearby academic libraries will deliver to the Greenspring and Owings Mills campuses within 24-48 hours of request. Details are on the Stevenson library website.
Knowledgeable and approachable library staff members stand ready to aid Stevenson University students to identify and locate vetted resources appropriate for their assignments.
