Library

The Library is not just a place to find books (although books will be available to check out this year), it is much much more. Students may access the Online Catalog Destiny, Encyclopedia Britannica, and Research Engine EBSCO (as well as many other handy links) 24-7 through the UAS Virtual Library webpage.

Students receive lessons in Library Skills, Research Skills and learn how to access, process, and evaluate information from any library. Our Library curriculum goes hand-in-hand with the classroom curriculum.

The Library Staff are available for questions from 7am – 3:30pm, Sunday thru Thursday, when they are not engaged in teaching lessons.

Our Team

 

The Library is headed by a Certified Librarian with a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Studies.
