Navigating the Libraries: Overview

The UGA Libraries' system may seem awfully big.

Trust us, once you've visited, you'll get the lay of the land. First, there are a few things it helps to know about our locations on campus.

  • Main Library and Science Library: these two buildings house the majority of the Libraries' collections. The Main Library on North Campus has materials in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and business, and the Science Library on South Campus has materials in the sciences and technology.
  • Miller Learning Center: our electronic teaching library has over 500 workstations.
  • Russell Special Collections Building: houses the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library; the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies; and the Walter J. Brown Media Archives and Peabody Awards Collection.
  • Music Library and Curriculum Materials Library: housed in the Music School and in Aderhold Hall respectively, these have specialized materials in the fields of music and education.
