Monmouth University Library

The University Library builds and maintains collections to support the teaching and scholarship mission of the University, whether online or in our historic library. Conveniently located adjacent to the residence halls, the library is a comfortable space where patrons can do so much: we have Wi-Fi, 110+ computers, network printers, copiers, document scanners, two classrooms, quiet study space, group meeting space, lounge space for casual reading, outdoor reading tables and benches, and a modest café.

Serving our faculty and students, with resource materials needed to support both curriculum and research needs, the University Library is the center of learning and research. The University Library provides robust access to a diverse collection of more than 400,000 monographs, e-Books, print journals, e-Journals (full text), media titles, microfilms, reference materials, and special collections, including government documents, the New Jersey Collection, the Mumford Collection, and the Library Archives. Coupled with Interlibrary Loan and reciprocal borrowing privileges, access to more than 2.1 billion holdings in over 72,000 libraries located in 170 countries around the world is only a request away.

Library online services are available twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week and include research guides customized by subject area that can be helpful in jump starting any project. The building is open seven days a week during the regular semester (until midnight Sunday―Thursday), and our staff is delighted to help, so please ask.  We can support our patrons’ needs in many ways, for any assignment, via phone at 732-571-3438, e-mail or one-on-one consultation by appointment.
