Though Empire State College became part of the SUNY system in 1971, they did not have a library of their own until 1997 when the Online Library and Learning Resource Center was established.
The library now has four full-time librarians and a well-rounded collection of e-books, online journals, reference resources and databases of images and videos. The Online Library is just that, online. There is no brick and mortar building for students and faculty to visit.
The librarians at Empire State College provide a variety of services ranging from Reference to Interlibrary Loan to @ Home Workshops and much more. All of our librarians are professionals with Masters degrees in Library Science or Information Science.
