About + Libraries

The University of Wyoming Libraries are centers of discovery and learning where students conduct research to develop skills for life-long learning. Faculty depend upon library collections to support their research and keep current with developments within their field. Librarians teach students how to locate, evaluate, and integrate information within their studies. We strive to be an integral part of scholarly activities at the University and remain at the forefront of information technology as it applies to library collections.

Integral to UW Libraries’ strategic plan and to that of the University, we continue to expand and transform the vision of library resources and services with new emphases on campus partnerships that enhance the educational experiences of students and faculty. At the University of Wyoming, libraries are central to the educational process and are often the origination point for new discoveries and cutting-edge research at the University. UW Libraries are truly the heart of the university and the crossroads of the campus.
