Bringing It Home – The Saint Rose Blog

Author: Neil Hellman Library

The Neil Hellman Library is an evolving organism. Once a big block building with books, journals and sterile study carrels for QUIET study, we now are a hub of student activity — with 50+ computers for students to use; 25 laptops to check out, 60+ databases, and lots and lots on quality online resources.
