Accessing the SERC Library

The SERC Library is offering access to the physical collection through pre-scheduled appointments to pick up 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. Materials must be reserved ahead of time prior to making an appointment by logging into your library account from the library catalog. Returns do not require an appointment but must be made during library open hours and library material must be directly handed to a library staff member (not left unattended).

See the SERC Library’s instructions regarding checking out and returning materials for more information.

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.
