New to UA Libraries? This video tutorial gives an overview of the Libraries' main search tools: Scout, the A-Z databases list, e-journals, and the library catalog.

The libraries offer a variety of spaces for you to work, including group study rooms and presentation practice rooms that you can reserve. Follow the links below to learn more and reserve space.

UA Libraries has black and white and color printing, 3D printing, and a variety of equipment such as cameras, laptops, tablets, and audio recording equipment that you can check out or use in the libraries for your projects. Learn more and reserve equipment at the links below.

If you need materials that aren't available in the UA catalog, you can request them from another library via interlibrary loan. You can receive copies of physical books or scans of articles and book chapters. The video tutorial below provides instructions for setting up your account and requesting materials. A transcript is available at the link.
