Did you know?

We have 7 libraries on campus.

Each library has its own unique collections, study spaces, and services. Find the library that's right for you:

We have tons of library resources (in the library and online).

We have books, eBooks, academic journals, newspapers, videos, databases, digital collections, and more! You can search for most resources using OneSearch on the library's home page:

There's online research guides.

Find the best resources for your subject by using our librarian-created research guides.

We have awesome tech.

From 3D printing to the One Button Studio, the libraries have many innovative technology spaces. Our computers are also loaded with software, and we have even more tech that you can check out: (iPads, cameras, podcasting kits, 3D printers)!


We have textbooks and we have scanners.

Although we do not have all of the textbooks on course reserves, we do have some that are available for check out to use within the library. We also have amazing scanners so you can scan a section for free.

You can access the libraries' online resources off-campus.

Just download the VPN, and you will have access to our online resources from anywhere.

You can ask a librarian.
