The library is often described as the "hub of a university" and at Samford it literally is at the center of the campus. The library as place has been and is important to the Samford community for the building houses valuable resources and our technology provides access to many subscription online databases, periodicals, and reference books. I hope that in your experience you will find service oriented librarians and staff who will assist all who come.
