Whether you're a student working on a term paper, a researcher on the cusp of a breakthrough, or a member of the community in search of a quiet spot to read, you belong at Northwestern University Library.

Today’s libraries help level the playing field by making both print and digital information affordable, available and accessible to all people.  Libraries provide cultural heritage, materials in print and electronic formats, and professionals to navigate a wealth of information.
Libraries have historically served as our nation’s great equalizers of knowledge. The strength of libraries has always been the diversity of their collections and commitment to serving all people. This National Library Week, join our nation’s libraries and librarians by celebrating the place where we all belong.
