Parents and Family Members' Guide to the SU Libraries: Home

This guide is intended to help parents and other family members of SU students get to know what the Libraries have to offer their students.


Welcome to the SU Libraries!   To get started, click on the tabs above to navigate to the different sections of this guide.

Why this Guide?

A university library differs from a public library in many ways and is far more complex than a typical high school media center. This guide will introduce you to our libraries. College students, especially first-year students, often turn to their parents or other family members for help with research and studying. We hope this guide will help you direct your student to take advantage of the many resources and services we offer. We would be delighted to have you visit the Libraries in person when you are on campus to see what we offer your student.
