Our collections include books, journals, scores, audio and video recordings, microform, and other physical materials housed in the Mary Church Terrell Main Library, the Clarence Ward Art Library, the Conservatory Library, the Science Library, and the Carnegie building. Additionally, the Libraries hold many scholarly published electronic resources–including databases, e-books, e-journals, and streaming audio and video. You can find these collections and more using our Search Tools. And for more information about how we manage our collections, please read our Collections Statement.
