Academic Engagement

The Academic Engagement Area of UConn Library exists to empower your research, teaching and learning across all of UConn’s campuses. We’re the public services people—we connect UConn Library collections, services, and spaces to your needs as a student, faculty member, staff member, or member of the community. Academic Engagement area team members partner with colleagues from across the Library, and across the campuses, to offer services that help the library become what you need it to be in your curricular and co-curricular teaching, research, and learning. We’re here to help you be successful at UConn and as a lifelong learner. Have a question? Ask us.
