Campus Map: Sojourner Truth Library

Sojourner Truth Library (1969)

The College Library was named to honor Sojourner Truth, a former slave born in Ulster County and freed prior to the Civil War. She was a staunch advocate for both civil and women's rights and was well known for her clear public speaking voice. She toured the nation campaigning for these causes and spoke before presidents Lincoln and Grant. The US postal service issued commemorative stamp at a ceremony held at the Sojourner Truth Library in February of 1986. The library contains over 550,000 volumes in open stack, more than one million pieces of microform, 1,030 subscriptions, and an array of research databases and electronic journals. The library Web site serves as a gateway to all library resources and key services. It is a partial government document repository and a member of the SUNY library network, which allows students to borrow books directly from any SUNY libraries. It also features one of three campus cafes.
