Welcome to the award-winning University of Minnesota Libraries, one of the University’s and the state’s greatest intellectual assets.
In 2017, we won the National Medal for Museum and Library Service from the Institute for Museum and Library Services — becoming only the third academic library to win the award in 23 years. We also received the 2009 Excellence in Academic Libraries award from the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association.
Our expert librarians can connect you with the resources you need . . . from the millions of volumes held in our general collections to the treasures of our archives and special collections, from tools to enhance your productivity to programs and services to help you expand the reach of your research.
Whatever you're looking for, look to us to be your partners in learning, teaching, and research.
