American Studies students shine a light on the history of Josiah B. Grinnell.
In 2013, a team made up of Drake Community Library and Grinnell College Library staff was selected to take part in ILEAD USA (Innovative Librarians Explore, Apply and Discover). This prestigious year-long program is designed to help library staff understand and respond to user needs through the use of technologies that encourage interactive collaboration by a wide range of people. The end goal is a program or project that could serve as a model for others with similar goals.
The Grinnell College Libraries' collections are housed in Burling Library, the Curriculum Library in Steiner Hall, and the Kistle Science Library in the Noyce Science Center. The Libraries' primary purpose is to support the research and study needs of Grinnell College students working within the College's liberal arts curriculum. We also support the basic research needs of the faculty. Our collections contain material in many languages and formats, traditional and electronic.
