New College

Dean’s Welcome

We are proud to serve the students, faculty and staff from New College and the University of South Florida, Sarasota-Manatee. Cook Library is a place where you can discover a topic for a paper or project, get assistance with the research on that topic, collaborate with colleagues in further developing the project, get writing assistance, help with surveys or other quantitative aspect of the paper or project, develop foreign language skills to better understand resources not in English, and put the paper together using the most appropriate technologies. Our spaces are designed with social learning in mind. Working on projects with colleagues is facilitated with flexible furniture, abundant technologies, robust wireless network access, and discrete spaces for groups and individual study.

Dean's Welcome!
