Welcome Back Students

The Library is pleased to welcome all students back to campus. As you start your work this Fall, please stop by the Library, where we will be happy to answer questions and provide aid in any way we can.

Paintings on Display

The Library was selected to display two recently donated paintings by African-American artist Charles Ethan Porter (1847–1923).  The paintings were donated to the Seattle Pacific University’s John Perkins Center and restored through the Senior gift fund of the class of 2016. They are installed on the north wall of the Library’s main level.  Learn more about Porter and his work.

Did You Know? : Course Reserves

Has your professor put items on course reserve for your class? If so, the items are being held behind the front desk. If you bring the call number for a reserve item to the desk, then a library worker will be able to pull it from the reserves shelf for you. To find your item's call number, click the "Course Reserves" tab in the blue box at the top of the Library home page. Then, search by your professor's name, or by item title. If you have any questions about course reserves, please ask anyone at the front desk.
