The University of Texas at Arlington Libraries is a model 21st century urban academic library dedicated to elevating the research and scholarship of our diverse communities. Collections include current books, journals, and electronic resources, as well as unique historical manuscripts, maps, and photographs. The Libraries boasts 5+ million annual book and article downloads and more than one million annual visits from its users.
Central Library is open 24 hours and contains numerous study spaces for quiet or collaborative study. Meet a research coach or tutor on the 2nd floor, create something new in the FabLab or brand-new Studios, or get tech help from our in-house OIT helpdesk. Our Special Collections on the 6th floor holds more than 1,500 archives and manuscript collections, primarily in Texas history, cartography, and the U.S.-Mexico War of 1846-48. When you need a break, visit the Market or Einstein Bros. Bagels for a snack, or kick back with friends in our premier gaming space, The Basement. Weekly events like Doggy Days, Maverick Kitchen, and more provide opportunities for students to build community and learn new skills beyond the classroom.
The Libraries also offers robust virtual and in-person services and collections via its branches in the Architecture & Fine Arts and Science & Engineering buildings, as well as houses thousands of additional materials in its offsite Library Collection Depository that are available upon request.
