The Richmont Graduate University Library in Atlanta and the Poindexter Library in Chattanooga are essential partners with the faculty in Richmont’s instructional and research endeavors. Our library collections and programs are designed to meet the information needs of students and the local communities in which our campuses are located, fostering the development of creative reasoning and critical thinking that leads to intellectual, spiritual and social growth. We also seek to advance scholarship, develop critical competencies, promote lifelong learning, and otherwise serve the needs of Richmont’s curriculum. Our librarians conduct periodic surveys of comparable institutions and collaborate with Richmont faculty to determine library holdings.
The combined physical collections of the libraries provide a rich resource for integration studies with more than 37,000 physical volumes. The libraries also provide access to more than 15,000 electronic books through NetLibrary. Students have access to resources such as PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES, Psychology & Behavioral Sciences Collection, Religion & Philosophy Collection, Religious Periodicals, and many other databases via GALILEO (Georgia Library Learning Online) and TEL (Tennessee Electronic Libraries). In addition to print journal holdings of titles relevant to integration studies, the libraries provide access to more than 3,000 full-text online journals. Interlibrary loan services are provided through both libraries for materials held in SOLINET member libraries.
