Quincy College has libraries on both the Quincy and Plymouth campuses which provide a full-range of up-to-date resources and professional services in support of the educational goals, values and mission of Quincy College.

Anselmo Library on the Quincy campus is named in honor of former Quincy School Committee member Francis Anselmo, a longtime friend and benefactor of Quincy College. Krovitz Library on the Plymouth campus is dedicated to the memory of Bella and Robert Krovitz who demonstrated skilled leadership and guidance for the founding trustees of the college.

The professional staff consists of faculty librarians who provide a wide range of learning opportunities for students and faculty on conducting research, efficient use of available databases and information literacy. Librarians create electronic custom course guides to bring together and highlight for students the most relevant resources for their studies and offer in-classroom refreshers to help students achieve quality results with their research assignments.

  • 2500 DVD titles
