Anne Langley
Dean of UConn Library

Welcome to the UConn Library. At the heart of the university, we are committed to building the right library for UConn, one that connects with our community of learners, invests in our skills and expertise, and uses those unique resources to promote the creative exchange of ideas at UConn and beyond. We are guided by the strategies found in our Strategic Framework and all of the work we do is grounded in our values - curiosity and inquiry, equity and inclusion, kindness and trust, and having fun. We look forward to helping you solve problems big and small, assisting with your research, helping with your teaching, and giving you a place to think, innovate, and collaborate.

Thanks for joining us, we are looking forward to taking this journey with you.
