The Katharine Brush Library’s mission is to provide comprehensive, patron-centered services, facilities and collections in a comfortable, inclusive environment. By supporting the community’s research needs and teaching a comprehensive, patron-centered information literacy curriculum, library faculty and staff advance the School’s mission to prepare students for higher education and lifelong learning. Through its emphasis on cultivating critical thinking skills and a life of intellectual inquiry, the Library upholds The Loomis Chaffee School’s charge to inspire in students “a commitment to the best self and the common good.”
The library provides access to:
32,000 periodicals, newspaper, and scholarly journals
Ebsco Discovery Service (EDS) searches a majority of the Brush Library resources and databases, including PeliCAT, simultaneously in a single interface, and displays results in one unified list. Users have the ability to limit their search to books, eBooks, academic journals, and other resource types.
The Loomis community has the ability to request items via interlibrary loan from other libraries. Patrons can search other library holdings through WorldCat. Please fill out the corresponding form for your request:
