HSSE Library A. The library that complements my major, Political Science, the most is the Humanities, Social Sciences and Education Library or HSSE for short. This library is located in the Stewart Center room 150. The Stewart Center is on the east side of the Memorial Mall. For those that are still not sure about the Stewart Center, it is the building that hosts many movies that students are able to go and see if they bring their student ID. The HSSE library houses many printed resources (like books, periodicals, microfilm, and microfiche), but the library also has the ability to give students the opportunity to research resources online thanks to its many workstations that have Wi-Fi available for students electronic devices. If a student does not have an electronic device with them there are University computers stationed throughout the library, whether they are stationed in the main room of the library or in study rooms that are available. There are four floors to this library that houses valuable information for students to use for papers or other important course assignments. If a student is having trouble locating books or other materials that he/she would need, they can always ask the librarians that work at this library.
