How to Find Materials

Due to major renovations of Atkins Library most of our physical materials will be inaccessible beginning July 2024. A limited selection of collection materials can be used by appointment in Atkins Room 123. Government publications are located on the third floor of Atkins Library.

Below you will find information about how to discover resources, including our digital collections.

For further assistance and to inquire about available collection materials please contact us.
