ARC Construction Summer 2015
Thank you for your patience during construction for the new Academic Resource Center. While the library space is closed for construction, please visit Room 244 for a limited selection of print items, serials, and library services. Our librarians are still available to assist you with research, too. Please visit our Facebook page for pictures and construction updates.
Welcome to the Auburn Hills Library
The Library is the place to go when you want to do research...study...do group work...or just relax!
Our priorities are student research, information literacy, and library instruction. During instructional periods, the main area of the library can get a little noisy. Study carrells are arranged around the outside of the room to give individual students a space to study. In addition, the library has several group study rooms and free ear plugs!
The library has 36 computer stations for students. As of Fall 2014, students are required to log in using their Baker College username and password. Please ask library staff for assistance if needed.
