The staff of the Leslie J. Savage Library provides information, resources, and services designed to advance the intellectual and personal development of members of the University community. When classes are in session, the Library’s services are available seven days a week.
Students find the majority of information they seek for course assignments in the Library collection. In addition to over 250,000 volumes and 3,500 films, the collection includes access to over 70,000 electronic books and over 60 electronic journal databases. Special collections include federal and state government documents, books in the Western Colorado History Collection, and the University archives.
The Library makes extensive use of electronic databases to facilitate identifying and locating desired materials. Using the Library’s catalog, the search for information can be extended to libraries and databases throughout the United States. Through the Library’s resource sharing services, students can borrow materials from other libraries nationwide.
The Library staff gives students the opportunity to become skilled at using the full range of information resources and services. In addition to helping individuals identify and locate desired information, librarians offer group and individual instruction to students as they start to research topics for course assignments. Savage Library provides a welcoming environment for study and research.
