Swarthmore librarians visit more than 80 academic classes per year.

What do first-year

students ask?

My textbook hasn't arrived yet.

How can I do the reading for my first class?

I really need this one book of poetry for my research. Even though there may only be one copy.

In Poland.

Where can I find information about creating luminescent concrete?

How do I compare voter turnout across multiple US elections?

Can I make my research project on reaction GIFs interactive?

And put it on the web?

Where can I stream critically-acclaimed foreign films?

(Or binge watch GoT?)
