About the Library

The Roger Williams University Library is the institution’s academic and intellectual center, proactively contributing to teaching, learning, and research in order to prepare the learner, support the scholar, and foster discovery and lifelong learning for all students, faculty, and staff.

The Main Library is home to the Learning Commons - an active, learner-centered environment that integrates library resources, information technology, academic support services, instruction, and collaborative and individual study space. 

The Architecture Library is located in the Cummings School of Architecture. With this subject focus, the Architecture Library houses 25,000 print titles, a digital collection of more than 45,000 images, and subscriptions to more than 140 periodicals and journals in print, along with electronic access to many hundreds of others.
