*DID YOU KNOW?*

Study Rooms: The library has 12 rooms available for individual and group study. Some rooms are open and others are reservation only. Please see our Room Reservations guide.

Media: Our Digital Initiatives & Preservation Department located on the 1st floor of the library has over 9,000 dvds, blu-rays, and audio books for your research and entertainment needs. Find that relevant film for your research topic or watch the latest season of your favorite TV series. See our Media Services guide.

Browsing Books:
Want to read something besides a textbook? Looking for that new New York Times Best Seller? You may find it in our Browsing Collection located on the 2nd floor lobby of the library. Come check it out.

Printer Pages:
All students are allocated $85 of Printer Bucks per semester (over 1,400 printed pages). Printers are located on each floor of the library. We also have a color printer, scanners, and copiers on the 2nd Floor. Contact the Print and Mail Center if you run out of Printer Bucks.

*Your Library Resources*

Where to start for Articles, Books, and More...

Start your research assignments with our Subject and Course Research Guides

With over 64 subject areas and courses covered, these guides provide recommendations for where to start with research in a specific topic. These suggestions include relevant databases to search for articles, online and print book resources, as well as credible websites. There is also a section with in-text and reference page citation help.
Not seeing a subject guide you need, contact us at library@regis.edu
Resource Spotlight

Academic Search Premier

With access to over 3,750 academic journals with full text articles, this database is a research favorite.
In Academic Search Premier (EbscoHost is the search platform) be sure to use valuable tools such as the "suggest subject terms" at the top of the search boxes to find search terms that work well for your topic.
Once you have done your search, get better article results by using the tools under "refine results" on the left. Don't forget to check the "scholarly journals" box to limit results to peer reviewed articles, a feature Google does not have. Enjoy ASP!

*Library Hacks*

Here are some tips on how to use your library for you!


  • Try out Prospector. This service gives you access to over 30 million books, DVDs, CDs, videos and audio books owned by 40 participating libraries. Request materials and have them sent to your favorite campus location. It's that easy!

  • Not finding that last article you need? Try Google Scholar. Be sure to add "Regis University Library" into the "settings" and "library links" to find full text articles that are available to you.
