The University Libraries' provide access and help you find the information that you need-and, importantly, teach you to evaluate available information and use reliable sources. Our digital resources and services, including off-campus/ wireless access to databases and e-journals, make it tempting for some to use the library almost exclusively online. In contrast, many students appreciate the library as a place to meet friends, to work in groups, to get away and study, or just to relax and check out some recreational reading or DVDs. These students take comfort in knowing that one library, Hunt Library, is open 24/5, Sunday through Friday.
Here is a quick look at library locations, hours, and subjects.
