About the Library

The IIRP Graduate School maintains an academic social science research library whose scope comprises all aspects of restorative practices, including related areas of education, psychology, criminology, social services, conflict resolution, statistics, management and human resources. 

The Library’s collection includes:

  • Books
  • Journals
  • Conference proceedings
  • Government, institutional and corporate reports & grey literature
  • Audiovisual materials

The Library supports the Graduate School’s blended curriculum by maintaining both a physical research collection and gateway access to digital scholarly content. We provide knowledge support for IIRP program initiatives, faculty and guest scholar research, and student coursework.

We serve the IIRP Graduate School’s faculty, students and staff; we are happy to accommodate external researchers as resources permit.

Borrowing policy:  Borrowing Library materials is restricted to Bethlehem-based IIRP faculty and staff. Others may use books and other library items on-site at our Bethlehem campus office.
