With subscriptions to more than 100 electronic databases including Academic Search Complete and ProQuest Research Library, students have access to more than 100,000 full text ejournals, 300,000 ebooks, and research tools such as RefWorks and LibGuides.
Public computers and printers are available for use during regular hours. Computer equipment and printing is also available in the 24/7 room after hours. In addition to the Jorgensen Wylder Classroom, there is study space for individuals and groups. Study rooms can be booked online up to two weeks in advance.
The Library provides interlibrary loan services to students through OCLC WorldShare and is a founding member of TRAILS (Treasure State Information & Academic Library Services).
