The University of Connecticut Libraries is the largest public research collection in the state. The collection includes books, print and electronic periodicals, microfilm, maps, sound and video recordings, musical scores, and an ever growing array of electronic resources, including ebooks, streaming audio and video collections, as well as art and photographic image databases.
The Learning Commons, featured on Level 1, offers two large information retrieval cafes; a 40-workstation computer lab; two electronic instruction classrooms; digitizing and scanning services; a writing center; a math tutoring center; research assistance; a language tutoring and cultural center; a center for computer technology training and media editing; and personal computer help services.
The Babbidge Library also houses a Map and Geographic Information Center (MAGIC), which is the largest public map collection in New England and a nationally acclaimed resource for geospatial data. MAGIC, in collaboration with several other campus departments, operates the Connecticut State Data Center, the state’s official liaison to the U.S. Census Bureau, which provides a single portal for all socioeconomic data for the state and its municipalities.
Also included are an Art & Design Library and reading room; the Roper Center Public Opinion Archives; comprehensive collections of current and retrospective Federal and Connecticut documents; extensive video and audio collections; and two video theaters.
Other libraries on the Storrs campus include the Music & Dramatic Arts Library in the Fine Arts complex, the Pharmacy Library in the Pharmacy/Biology building, and the Archives & Special Collections at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center.
