Named for James and Evelyn Jenks, generous supporters of Gordon College, Jenks Library is the campus gateway to information resources and services. The library's website is the starting point for library research at Gordon. The NOBLE catalog, electronic resources, course reserves and interlibrary loan services are all available on the library's website.
These resources and services, combined with a strong service program, make Jenks Library an essential part of teaching and learning at Gordon College. In addition to resources, librarians are also available six days a week to assist students in the use of library resources and in the development of strong analytical and information-seeking skills. Jenks's mission, to support the mission and curriculum of Gordon College, is achieved in part by the purchasing of new materials that support the curriculum. Jenks also seeks to provide a welcoming environment to all by providing study space of all kinds, quiet study as well as group collaborative learning.
In the event that the college closes due to inclement weather, Jenks Library will be open 10:00am to 9:00pm. If the building is experiencing a power outage, a decision to remain open will be made on that day.
Students may post advertisements for events, activities, or other campus happenings on the 3rd floor bulletin board (near CTS). Please note, this is the only approved poster location within the 3rd and 4th floor of Jenks Library. Posters will be removed if found elsewhere. Additionally, you may post advertisements in the front entrance of the building by the 2nd floor stairwell, and down the stairs between the 2nd and 1st floor. If you have questions about where you can hang your posters, please ask at the Circulation Desk or check with Student Life for all approved poster locations across the campus. Thank you!
