It is my great pleasure to welcome new and returning students to the University of Miami Libraries. The UM Libraries rank among the top 50 academic research libraries in the United States and support the full range of research, teaching, learning, and clinical care activities across the three UM campuses (Coral Gables, Virginia Key, and Downtown Miami). Our libraries provide extraordinarily broad and deep print and electronic resources in all areas of the sciences, engineering, medicine, arts, humanities, and design.
Highlights of developments at the UM Libraries this academic year:
Student participation and input, including advice provided by the Student Government academic council liaisons, have driven the Learning Commons and fifth floor renovation projects at Richter Library. We are pleased that you view the UM Libraries as a key resource for your personal academic growth and development.
Whether you are looking for a location for group collaboration, in-depth research assistance, technology support, academic services such as those provided at our new Learning Commons, or just a quiet place to study, our UM Libraries faculty and staff look forward to seeing you at one of our six locations:
Medical Campus (Downtown Miami)
Rosenstiel Campus (Virginia Key)
We wish you an engaging and successful year!
Dean and University Librarian
