Welcome to the University of Iowa Libraries

During these first couple weeks of the semester, everything will be new again, whether you are a returning student or this is your first day at the University of Iowa. You’ll be learning new information, meeting new friends, finding new resources. And the UI Libraries can be one place for you escape all the new or embrace it.

We have librarians for every major at the University, which means we have a librarian for you. If you’re a new student and involved with a Living Learning Community, you’ll have opportunities throughout the year to meet your personal┬álibrarian and work with that person.

Though this may be the largest library you’ve ever visited (we’re among the top 30 research libraries in the country), you are welcome here. You don’t need to know all the answers here, we can help you with your questions. All you have to do is ask.

Have a great year and we look forward to working with you.

Nancy L. Baker, University Librarian
