Library Information

Printed sources on international education might be located in a St. Thomas library or other libraries in CLICnet. You may request items at other libraries through interlibrary loan. If you are in an off-campus cohort (and outside the metro area), you may request any circulating books from any library (including Keffer) on interlibrary loan and they will be mailed to you.
