Library staff members connect you to information for your classes.  Whether you are looking for a quick fact or just getting started on a research paper or presentation for one of your classes, we can help you find what you need.

You can connect with current information at the library as well.  We have current subscriptions to more than 90 magazines & four newspapers.  The library also has access to almost 50,000 electronic journals.  Be sure to use library computers to check your favorite news sites, Facebook pages and e-mail accounts.

Visit the library to have your barcode activated and then start searching for books or journal articles on your topic.  You can read, print, or download many books & journal articles.  Urbana University is part of OhioLINK which connects you to any of the 121 other colleges & universities in Ohio.  If you see a book on the OhioLINK website that you would like to read, use the barcode from the back of your student ID to request a copy of the book and it will be delivered to the UU library for you.

In addition to our array of books and journals, we have wireless access, computers, copier/printers, a fax machine, an Ellison machine, small study rooms and laminating services.  The library also houses a children's literature collection and a popular fiction section.  Additionally, we are home to the University archives and the Swedenborg collection.  Also, for your entertainment, we have DVD, VHS and CD collections.  The library offers plenty of comfortable seating as well as tables for the times you need to relax, spread out or work with a small group.
