Welcome to the Scott Memorial Library Virtual Tour!
Scott Memorial Library is named for Samuel Parsons Scott, a lawyer from Hillsboro Ohio who claimed to have been cured of a chronic respiratory ailment by a JMC professor. Mr. Scott bequeathed his personal library of over 8,000 books, along with an endowment, to Jefferson; the Library was dedicated to him in 1931. Scott Library moved to its present location at 1020 Walnut Street in August of 1970.
Today resources include access to over 11,000 online journals, over 1,150 electronic books, over 200,000 bound volumes, and more than 2,000 audiovisual items. In addition, Scott Library is home to the University Archives.
Library services include lending, reference, interlibrary loan, Internet access, online searching, quiet and group study areas, photocopiers, laser printers, computer application support, and user education. Many services are freely available via JEFFLINE, the Library's website; computer workstations are located throughout the building. By using their Campus Keys, members of the Jefferson community can access additional restricted resources on JEFFLINE, such as electronic databases and journals, from on- or off-campus computers.
