Plans, projects and guidelines

The library is far more than just a place full of books—although we do have millions of print and digital resources for you to explore! Our diverse staff are skilled in the areas of digital literacy, research support, innovation and much more. No matter which campus you’re on, you can find expert guidance and advice at our service desk or through our Library Chat service.
