Look in LibGuides for research assistance:

Search tips: The default search is AND, i.e. it will search for all the words entered. To perform an OR search, use the | character, e.g. hello | world. To exclude words, use the ! character, e.g. hello ! world (searches for matches where there is the word hello but not the word world). To search for a phrase, enter it in quotes, e.g. "hello world".


Search LibAnswers for FAQs and other library help:

Useful Tip: Enter a question, words, or phrases to find existing answers. If you don't find what you want, ask us and we'll email you back!

Message from the Director
I thought you might like an update on what's been going on in Johnson Library.
In an effort to more comprehensively document and preserve SPSU's history, the University Archives is currently expanding our collection of items that capture and convey the shared story of our university. If you have records, materials, or memorabilia related to SPSU's history and traditions, activities and operations, or unique institutional culture, we are very interested in acquiring them for inclusion in the university archives. You can find a quick guide to the kinds of material the archives collects and how you can donate your material to us at /libraryarchives/donating.
We've got Hornet TV displaying when you walk in the building, and are beginning to promote Library information such as events and hours.
Our 15th annual book sale broke $1,000 for the first time. We very much thank you for your support! We are also cross-promoting the upcoming book sale by the KSU Sturgis Library Friends group. It will be Monday and Tuesday, April 14 and 15, from 9:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. in the Sturgis Library lobby. For directions to the Library, see the campus maps at
I'd also like to promote the wide resources available at the Cobb County Public Library, starting with their Tax Information web page. April 15 will be here very soon!
Some of you have discovered us on social media and our anonymous online suggestion box. I encourage you to contact us there. We'd love to hear from you!
