Wabash students rely on the Lilly Library to conduct research, ask for help with assignments, write papers, check out books and media, work on group projects, record podcasts, and meet with friends. Our collections include 220,000+ print books, 1,700,000+ electronic books, and 120,000+ electronic journals. We also offer streaming movies and music as well as DVDs and CDs. The Ramsay Archives and Special Collections documents the life of the College, including historical copies of the student newspaper (The Bachelor) and yearbook.
The Education Technology Center provides the equipment and training for media projects, including video production, poster design, image scanning & editing, photo quality color printing, and more. Built in 1959, the Library was renovated and expanded in 1992. In 2014, the Library welcomed the Writing Center followed by the 1832 Brew coffee shop in 2016. In 2022, we added a Podcast Studio and upgraded the Game Lab. Resources from the Goodrich Chemistry Library were integrated into Lilly in the summer of 2000. The Library also features the Goodrich Seminar Room on its second floor, which was funded by Pierre Goodrich. This grand gathering place provides Wabash students with a practical tool for understanding and interpreting the historical evolution of the idea of individual liberty.
