Libraries

  • The University of Connecticut Libraries is the largest public research collection in the state. The collection includes books, print and electronic periodicals, microfilm, maps, sound and video recordings, musical scores, and an ever growing array of electronic resources, including ebooks, streaming audio and video collections, as well as art and photographic image databases. To help faculty and students negotiate these rich resources, librarians with expertise in specific academic disciplines are prepared to personally address any question that may arise.
  • The UConn Libraries all share a single catalog and form a single collection; each library unit serves as a full gateway to the entire collection. The Libraries’ networked resources, including electronic databases, eJournals, eBooks, and eReference tools, are available to all members of the University community via the Internet.
