Opened in 1971, the library underwent an
$12 million expansion in 1994, doubling its size. Besides books, the
library houses an audio/visual center, classrooms, auditorium, faculty/staff
offices, computer labs and an interactive television classroom/studio.
The library is named for Dr. Kenneth Shouldice, longtime LSSC president
who led the campus through an extensive building campaign in the late
1960s and 1970s.
The Kenneth J. Shouldice Library is an instructional resources center
open to all: students, faculty, and staff of LSSU, and members of the
community and region. A highly trained staff is available to help you
meet diverse informational and computing needs.
The collection consists of over 130,000 volumes and 850 periodical
subscriptions, as well as 75,000 microforms and nearly 1,000 items in
various formats. The on-line catalog, Voyager, provides access to our
collection. The library provides wireless access throughout its three
floors, and ample computer stations to access the Internet or one of
the many databases available. Ample room to study comfortably with seating
for over 350 is available as well as individual and group study rooms.
