Library Services For Staff

Curry Library offers full library services to every staff employee of William Jewell College regardless of status or time employed at the College. This means that a WJC part-time or full time staff member has the same access to library resources and services as a fully tenured faculty.

Popular library services include unlimited book checkouts from the general collection in Curry Hall, requesting books and articles from other libraries, use of all electronic resources such as journals and databases, and the physical library DVD Collections.
