Welcome to the Baker College of Flint/Academic Resource Center

The Library is the place to go when you want to do research...study...do group work...or just chill!

The main area of the library can get a little noisy.  Individual study carrells are arranged around the outside of the room to give students a space to study by themselves.   In addition, the library has two group study rooms.

The library has 39 computers stationed for student use.  Most computers require a Baker login; ask library staff for assistance. 

Computers are to be used for research purposes.  Those using the computers for other uses may be asked to move if the computer is needed.

The veterans raise questions about when wars are worth fighting, what missions can and can't be won, and the costs and benefits of US intervention, both around the world and domestically.
