Best Library Resources

Students studying at Ferris Grand Rapids location

Classes have started and that means you've got homework to do, books to read and course materials to study. Whether it's just a change of scenery or an assist from a librarian, sometimes a good library can make all the difference when it comes to getting down to work.

As a student at an off-campus location, not only do you have access to all of the library resources at Ferris, but you can also take advantage of the library at your community college.

Here are a few of our favorite library resources for our students across the state.

You can also set up a meeting with your liaison for some tips and tricks on how to use library resources to ace your next class.
