The University Library consists of newly-expanded McHenry Library (which houses the humanities and social science collections and the Media Center) and the Science & Engineering Library. Collections include 1.3 million bound volumes; access to over 12,000 periodicals, newspapers, and other serials; and special materials such as manuscripts, maps, slides, audiovisual materials, and interactive computer media. While most library materials may be checked out for use, audiovisual materials must be used in the Media Center. Library staff are eager to offer assistance with the use of the collections at various service points.
