To carry the keys of the world’s library in your pocket, And feel its resources behind you in whatever task you undertake
Introduction
Bowdoin has an exceptionally strong undergraduate liberal arts library, offering collections over one million volumes and access to extensive digital resources. These print and online sources include notable research materials, such as government documents, manuscript and rare book holdings, Bowdoin College archives, and large collections of photographs, current and historic newspapers, microforms, documentary and feature films, sound recordings, and musical scores.

Bowdoin’s distinguished collections, built up over more than 200 years, are housed primarily in Hawthorne-Longfellow Library, which includes the George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections and Archives. Hatch Science Library contains material related to the sciences and mathematics; smaller branch libraries are devoted to art, music, and film studies/language instruction.

"...To carry the keys of the world’s library in your pocket,
And feel its resources behind you in whatever task you undertake;
To make hosts of friends..."


From the "Offer of the College"

President of Bowdoin College 1885 - 1917
