We are proud to support students, faculty, staff, Coloradans and visiting scholars by providing essential scholarly resources, user-centered services and inclusive and welcoming spaces.

Our collections, the largest in the Rocky Mountain region, include 15+ million volumes and access to thousands of specialized research databases. Our five library locations (see maps & floor plans) offer a variety of spaces and services to support our community.

We are affiliated with the best research libraries in the country. Our memberships include HathiTrust, the Academic Preservation Trust, FOLIO, the Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries, the Greater Western Library Alliance, the Association of Research Libraries and the Center for Research Libraries.

Our people are at the heart of everything we do.

The University Libraries’ faculty and staff (view our directory and organizational chart) are committed to serving undergraduate and graduate students and collaborating with teaching faculty colleagues in all degree programs across our campus and the CU system. Our faculty, both tenure-stream and teaching professor-stream, participate in University of Colorado faculty governance. We offer a number of competitive positions with the goal of furthering our mission and values.
