University of Wyoming Libraries - Research



photographic portrait of Ivan Gaetz

The University of Wyoming Libraries are centers of discovery and learning where students conduct research to develop skills for life long learning. Faculty depend upon library collections to support their research and keep current with developments within their field. Librarians teach students how to locate, evaluate, and integrate information within their studies. We strive to be an integral part of scholarly activities at the University and remain at the forefront of information technology as it applies to library collections.

The Libraries are truly the heart of the university.
