Belmont College Library

Founded in 1971, Belmont College is a two-year public college located in St. Clairsville, Ohio.

OhioLINK recently spoke with the Belmont College Library director to learn more about the library's patrons and services:

What are your top three points of pride in your library?

  1. Our staff’s thorough understanding of the needs of our students, so that we can develop instructional materials, lead class workshops, and select resources that help students to succeed.
  2. Our busy library staff also facilitate the college’s Library Paraprofessional online degree. We develop library courses, select and mentor library instructors, and support students in our online two-year degree, which also leads to earning the ALA’s Library Support Staff Certification.
  3. Our library staff maintain a special collection for the Building Preservation/Restoration (BPR) program, including many unique resources about the basic trades used to preserve and restore historic structures.

What is the most popular spot in your library for patrons?

Around the printer. The college has never charged for printing, and students find it useful to print class notes, PowerPoints, and homework assignments. Also popular is the library’s computer lab; students use it for group study, computer work…and printing, of course.

How long have you been a member of OhioLINK?
