The Hugh Stephens Resources Library is the central building of the Quadrangle. The library collection includes more than 135,000 volumes with new materials added at the rate of approximately 1,000 each year. There is also a very good reference collection with professional staff who work with students and faculty to provide individual or group instruction concerning the various library resources as needed. The Library subscribes to approximately 355 magazines and newspapers in paper form, as well as several large databases with access to full-text and abstract versions of numerous journals. Other media include audio and videotapes, and journals on microform. The Education/Children's Resource Collection is also housed in the Library.
Access to the Library's collection is available through the online public catalog, Arthur. Stephens College is a member of the Arthur cluster of the MOBIUS consortium and has access to the collections of other academic libraries in Missouri. Students can view the online catalogs of other member libraries, borrow books directly online, or review their own list of checked out materials and renew items themselves if so desired. Arthur is available on the Web at http://arthur.searchmobius.org.
Students may obtain educational materials, supplies and books from The Bookshelf, which is centrally located on campus in Stamper Commons. Distance students may order books online at www.stephensbookshelf.com.
Housing for Graduate & Continuing Studies students may be available for weekend, short-format or summer courses and workshops. Please contact the Graduate & Continuing Studies office for more information.
You will have a Stephens e-mail account. All correspondence from our office, including enrollment confirmations, will be sent to this address. Please check your Inbox regularly! Six weeks after graduation, your Graduate & Continuing Studies email will be closed, so please be sure to print and/or save any important information from your email account before you graduate. If you withdraw from Stephens College or are inactive for more than a year, then your Graduate & Continuing Studies email and Blackboard accounts will be canceled immediately.
