This Week's Hours

Welcome to the Faculty Resources & Services Guide

The Library is here to help support you with your courses.

The Houston Cole Library provides information services and bibliographic resources to support the informational needs of the University community. The collection is built to support the curriculum and faculty research interests.

The collection is housed across eight floors and is divided according to broad subject areas. Each floor is managed by a subject specialist responsible for reference, instruction, liaison communications, and collection development in their respective subject areas.

The collection is comprised of over 800,000 titles and is supplemented by access to over 300 full text databases


In addition to the collections, the Library houses a computer lab, an instruction lab, an instruction classroom, a media lab, a Children's Reading Room, and the 11th Floor Conference Center.
