The George S. Nevens, Jr. Library
The George S. Nevens, Jr. library offers a comfortable, inviting environment conducive to learning and leisure. Large windows supply natural light, while soft seating around a fireplace makes the ideal place to read or relax. Three separate study rooms and The Jan Scott Room supply quiet space.
A recent addition to the space is the Brougher e-Learning center. This state of the art computer lab, which includes 12 PCs and 12 Macs, creates a wonderful learning space that allows for large classes, group workshops, as well as project-based learning. Oldfields extends its deepest gratitude to the W. Dale Brougher Foundation of York, PA, for this new, exciting addition.
Because the librarian works closely with the faculty in collection development, the 13,000+ materials are aligned to the curriculum at Oldfields. The various periodicals, videos/DVDs and audio books combine to form a comprehensive collection. The library is dedicated to nurturing information-literate students who develop into lifelong learners. Collaborative teaching and current resources such as the several databases, online reference tools and educational CDRoms, such as Kurzweil 3000, aid in the library's mission.
