The Library at South Suburban College is a central service area for books, periodicals, audiovisual materials, subscription databases, and online resources that support the classroom needs of the students, faculty, and staff as well as the research and informational needs of the community. The Library encourages self-inquiry by teaching users how and where to find information and how to enjoy and evaluate the world of books, magazines, media, and online resources.
