About the Library

The A-State Library is a campus leader in promoting critical thinking and information literacy. Librarians work with academic departments to provide course-related bibliographic instruction sessions and embed in both traditional and online classes. The Library also offers a for-credit information literacy class, Introduction to Academic Research, in both traditional and online formats.

To support instruction and research, the Library provides access to more than 330 online research databases and more than 1.78 million items, including books, eBooks, journals, sound recordings, government documents, media items, and archival documents and photographs. To ensure equitable access, the Library provides document delivery service, including scanning journal articles and book chapters from the physical collection for digital delivery to off-campus faculty and students. The Library also meets the social and study needs of students with a wide variety of single and group study rooms, traditional and mobile furniture, and whiteboards.
