Beskrivelse: The University of Connecticut Libraries form the largest public research collection in the state. The collection contains some 3.6 million volumes; 51,000 currently received print and electronic periodicals; 4.3 million units of microform; 15,000 reference sources; 232,000 maps; sound and video recordings; musical scores; and a growing array of electronic resources, including eBooks, eSound recordings, and image databases.

The University's main library, the Homer Babbidge Library, is located at the center of the Storrs academic core, and serves both graduate and undergraduate programs. 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 quantitative tutoring center; a learning resource center (for computer technology training); as well as reference and research 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; 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 Dodd Research Center. Each of the University's five regional campuses — Avery Point, Greater Hartford, Stamford, Torrington, and Waterbury — maintains a library dedicated to serving the programs at those sites. These UConn Libraries all share a single catalog and form a single collection; each library unit serves as a full gateway to the entire collection. The Libraries' networked resources, including electronic databases, eJournals, eBooks, and eReference tools, are available to all members of the University community via the Internet.
