Library Services

Lamson Library is pleased to offer guests and alumni of PSU access to our Library.  While many of the library’s resources are only available to current students and staff, such as the electronic databases (due to licensing restrictions), many other resources are available both in print and online, free of charge.  In addition, PSU alumni, and NH residents may purchase a Community Borrower card in order to checkout materials from the library’s collection.  Some limits may apply to special categories of materials, such as educational curriculum, children’s literature and special collections.

There are six public access computers with internet access for PSU alumni and visitors to use at the Learning Commons at Lamson Library. Additionally, there are coin operated copy machines available to all users.
