The Library, which serves as the information center for the LAS community, currently houses nearly 20,000 print volumes on art, history, philosophy, religion, sociology, science, English, French and German literature, and many other subjects. In addition to printed reference materials, we also have 1,600 videos and DVDs on a wide range of topics.
At LAS, the Library comprises two separate spaces, one in the Savoy building and another on the Belle Époque campus. Each space has its own unique features, while both share wonderful light and amazing views.
In the vibrant Savoy space, completed in 2005, students and faculty can access a diverse fiction section, a nonfiction section that supports Savoy classes, a large periodicals collection and the DVD/VHS collections. The Library Office houses a large collection of valuable historical titles, many dating back to the 19th century and some originally belonging to the Grand Hotel. The Savoy space also includes a spacious conference room, lecture area, group study tables and a children’s corner.
The lovely Belle Époque space, completed in 2010, houses nonfiction titles that support the IB Programme and provides computer access for research, printing and word processing. It also serves as a reading room and group study area, with hardwood floors, comfortable furniture and large windows providing ambiance.
