Welcome to the SUMC Library online!

The SUMC library exists for three main purposes: to provide adequate resources and support the coursework offered on the SUMC campus; to teach students how to conduct college level research; and to supply students with their textbooks.

The library is open Monday through Friday during the semester, and extends its hours during the final exam period. For exact times, please consult the library door. If you have questions during or after library hours, send an email to the librarian. She will try to get back to you within 24 hours.
