The SMTC Library is located on the second floor of the Campus Center. The library is designed as a research, study and recreational reading area for the entire SMTC community. One of the library's missions is to assist users in learning how to locate, evaluate and use information. For a tour of the library click here.


The library houses a collection in excess of 15,000 volumes and subscribes to over 300 periodicals and numerous on-line databases. Many of these resources can be accessed from a remote location as well. Local, state and regional newspapers are available.
Through participation in local and regional library networks the library is able to obtain additional resources for its users. We are also a member of the Greater Portland Alliance of Colleges and Universities which provides our patrons with borrowing privileges at five area schools:
Maine College of Art, Southern Maine Technical College, Saint Joseph's College, University of New England - Biddeford and Portland Campuses, University of Southern Maine - Gorham and Portland Campuses

A GPACU card will be issued upon request to registered SMTC students in good standing. Cards are issued by the Registrar's Office. Borrowers will need to present a valid GPACU card when borrowing materials from any of the other libraries.A brochure detailing the GPACU borrowing policies is issued along with the card.
