Accessing the SERC Library

The SERC Library is offering access to the physical collection through pre-scheduled appointments to pick up and drop off materials at our building’s lobby library kiosk. There is currently no in-person browsing of the collection nor are users allowed in the actual library.

Library users should reserve their materials ahead of time, either by logging into their SERC Library account and placing a hold/reserve on material(s), or by contacting SERC Library staff for assistance with this. Once a hold/reserve is confirmed via email as available and ready to pick up, users should then make an appointment to pick up materials using the "Schedule Your Library Visit" calendar; users will also use this calendar to schedule an appointment to return materials. Library staff can also help you over email or phone if you need to sign up for a library account or update your account.

Please carefully read the SERC Library’s instructions regarding checking out and returning materials to ensure the safety of our staff, yourself, and others.

We take the health and safety of our patrons and staff seriously. With this in mind, it is the SERC Library’s current practice is to quarantine all materials for a period of three days after return before making them available to the public. The SERC Library also reserves the right to close the library should a member of our staff report a positive COVID result, or alter practices for handling used materials. We appreciate your patience in this matter.

We thank you again for your understanding and for your continued support.
SERC Library Team

The SERC Library serves as a comprehensive Library/Resource Center with an extensive and current collection of research, reference, and instructional materials and resources related to education and social services. The Library was established to assist Connecticut education professionals, college/university students, families, and community members in achieving positive educational and life outcomes for all learners.

As one of the initial activities of SERC when it was founded in 1969, the Library continues to be a key contributor to the SERC vision of Equity. Excellence. Education.
