About The Donald B. Watt Library

The Donald B. Watt Library provides a collection of materials relevant to SIT Graduate Institute’s and SIT Study Abroad’s curricula. These materials include books, DVDs, videotapes, periodicals, e-books, electronic databases, and student research. The majority of the library’s collection is available in electronic format in order to facilitate research by students and faculty both at our Brattleboro campus and elsewhere around the world.

Non-electronic items will be mailed to off-campus students and faculty upon request. Resources not held in our print or electronic collection may be available through our interlibrary loan service. The library also provides remote research assistance and instruction.
