There is a library on each of the three campuses which provides information resources,
instruction, computers, laptop loans, group study spaces and other services. The campus
libraries collectively offer a book collection totaling 200,000 volumes. The library
provides access to an extensive database collection consisting of thousands of online
periodicals, newspapers, and electronic books. Library databases include Academic
Search Complete, ArtStor, CINAHL, JSTOR Digital Archive, Gale Literature, and ScienceDirect.
In addition, the library offers access to a variety of streaming video titles. Students
and faculty can access library collections in the campus libraries or from off-campus
through the library website at sunysuffolk.edu/library using their MYSCCC ID/PW to
authenticate through the library system.
Library faculty assist students with their information and research needs through
in-person, online chat, and telephone reference service. In collaboration with classroom
instructors, librarians offer class sessions on effective critical thinking skills
that promote information literacy. The libraries provide additional opportunities
for students to gain proficiency using and evaluating information sources by offering
a one-credit course, Introduction to College Research (LIB101), which is offered in both traditional face-to-face and online modalities.
The library collaborates with other university and college libraries to share resources
allowing students and faculty access to other collections on Long Island, in New York
State, and beyond. Students and faculty can also request materials from other SUNY
libraries using the library’s OneSearch discovery tool and items will be delivered
to the user’s local SCCC campus library for pick-up.
Campus library hours and locations are available on the library webpage. For additional
information call: (631) 451-4800 (Ammerman), (631) 548-2536 (Eastern) or (631) 851-6740
