Welcome from the Library

Hello!  The University Library strives to support all students and faculty through relevant and timely resources, services, and spaces.  As an e-preferred library, the majority of the resources that our campus constituents need are available 24/7/365 from any computer.  Assistance is available in person at the library's information desk on the first floor or via live online chat all hours that the library is open.  There are dedicated subject librarians for each college, who will assist students and faculty one-on-one, provide instruction on specific resources, and purchase/license resources needed for coursework and research in the colleges.

We welcome your feedback and input in order to provide the best resources and services possible.  Thank you for visiting our website!

Library Features

The library is located in the building South of Classroom Hall and features approximately 40 study rooms that can be checked out for both individual study or group work. The study rooms feature dry erase boards, electrical outlets, wall mounted LCD monitors (except in micro study rooms) and tables for studying and powering electronic devices.  Be sure to take advantage of our family study room that is available for students who need to bring their children with them.  The room features children's toys and games to keep your little ones entertained while you study.  Please see the study room policy for more details.

The library also features a Silent Study Zone in room 301 A that is open to patrons who require a distraction free space to study individually and who are willing to help promote as noiseless an environment as possible for all users.  Please review the silent study zone policy for more details. 

For groups of students looking for a place to meet on demand and work productively together, look no further than the library's Collaborative Zone which is located in room 103.  The room features multiple moveable tables and chairs, moveable white boards, and the tools needed to construct student teaching projects, poster and presentation creations, and other creative and artistic products or course assignments.
