The Washington University Libraries are a great academic partner for Washington University students and faculty members, and a resource for independent scholars as well as the surrounding community.
The University Libraries strive to provide the best possible research tools and most informed research advice to members of the Washington University community, while working to expand access to information for people around the world. Students and faculty benefit from gaining early familiarity with the Libraries’ collections and services; comfortable, convenient facilities; and friendly, knowledgeable staff.
From any of our University Libraries’ homepages, you can check library locations and hours, browse holdings, request or renew materials*, view many online books and articles*, chat live with a staff member, and learn about our unique collections.
*Certain services are limited to current Washington University students, faculty, and staff.
