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.
