It is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to the UNC Greensboro University Libraries. The Libraries include the Walter Clinton Jackson Library and the Harold Schiffman Music Library. The online catalog also includes the holdings of the Teaching Resources Center, the Intercultural Resource Center, and the Interior Architecture Library.

Through its quality information resources, technology, learning environments and staff expertise the University Libraries serve as the information and learning hub for the UNCG campus and surrounding community. The Libraries’ buildings provide a variety of spaces for group collaboration and quiet study, some of which are open 24/5 during the academic year. Through the web site users have access to vast online resources from around the world including books, journal articles, newspapers, and digital collections. Our outstanding faculty and staff help patrons find the information they need, teach students how to find appropriate resources, and assist faculty with their research. Up-to-date technology helps users create a wide variety of products such as videos, posters, and 3D objects as well as traditional reports and papers. The Special Collections and University Archives Department preserves and makes available several notable collections including UNC Greensboro history, Cello Music, and the Betty H. Carter Women Veteran’s Historical Project, just to name a few. The Libraries are also committed to digitizing unique collections so that they are freely available to everyone. And, throughout the year we sponsor numerous interesting programs and exhibits; most are free and open to the public.

Whether you are just beginning or continuing your academic or research endeavors, I invite you browse our web site, visit the buildings on the UNC Greensboro campus, and join us for a program or exhibit. We look forward to serving you!
