The University Libraries at University of the Arts provide services and collections that educate and inspire students to be effective researchers and critical users of information and apply those skills to their artistic, creative and lifelong endeavors.
UArts’ Libraries reflect the broad range of interests and media UArts students are inspired by. Beyond books, the collections include art, music, films and videos, photography, rare books, numerous digital collections and more.
Centers for Learning
In the University Libraries, artists, dancers, musicians, media makers, graduate students and faculty come together to learn in a multidisciplinary environment.
We have collections dedicated to different disciplines and in a variety of formats—print, digital (including access to numerous full-text and streaming databases, and e-reference works), videos, audio files, etc. No matter what you’re researching, you’ll gain access to the materials you need.
