The J. Clarence Kelly Library is designed to meet the information needs of our students, faculty, and staff. The facility houses a collection of over 40,000 items, including books, and audio and video materials. In addition, the library subscribes to a variety of periodicals, including local, regional, and national newspapers.
Many more scholarly journals, electronic books, newspapers and periodicals are available online through the University Libraries' website. Librarians are available to assist visitors with research questions in person or online using the Ask a Librarian service.
The University Libraries provide access to many research tools online, including the library's catalog (the CAT) and LionSearch. Additional access to periodical literature is available in print indexes and over 560 databases, many of which provide full-text access. All of these resources are available through the Kelly Library homepage.
The main floor of the library houses the Service & Circulation desk, along with reference works, Course Reserves materials, periodicals, newspapers, microforms, and part of the circulating collection (including the Leisure Reading collection and Teaching International display). PC workstations are available in both the group-study and quiet-study areas. A printer, photocopier, microfiche and microfilm reader/printers, audio and video cassette players, and DVD and CD players are also available on the main floor.
The lower level of the library houses the remainder of the circulating collection, a collaborative workstation and two group-study pods, and areas for quiet study, as well as the John H. Gruskin Learning Center.
