The Library

Get a head start on your research and creative projects with our online research guides, chat, and email research assistance, and Zoom research consultations. Discover articles, e-books, data, museum quality images, streaming music and films, and much more, all selected to support and enrich your creative, academic, and entrepreneurial work. View videos explaining how to use select library resources. Ask us for your course texts available electronically or on reserve in the library. In the library space, find computers, printers, scanners, quiet areas, and single occupancy study rooms. Borrow from our arts-focused book collection or our media & equipment collection that includes cameras, camcorders, projectors, microphones, and phone chargers. 

The Boiler Room is located on the 4th floor and is designed to connect you with unique library resources just steps away. It anchors a fledgling arts corridor, housing our artists-in-residence and space designed to accommodate workshops and hands-on making sessions. These workshops support your creative work and connect you to campus and city-wide communities of practice. The Library offers a unique Little Food Library, available all hours the library is open, for students who are experiencing food insecurity.
