    What the Library Offers

    by Meghan Kowalski on 2023-08-29T08:00:00-04:00 | 0 Comments

    Welcome to the beginning of a new semester!

    Whether this is your first time as a Firebird or you're in your last semester before graduation, the UDC Library is here to support you. We provide spaces, resources, and personal assistance to help you complete assignments and reach your goals.


    Spaces and Resources

    Through the Library, you have access to resources including:

    • Study spaces
    • Computers (both PCs and Macs!) and Wi-Fi 
    • Software (Microsoft Office, Audacity, SPSS, Lockdown Browser, Speech Filling System)
    • Printing, Copying, and Scanning
    • Firebird Lending Library (FREE books for everyone!)

    The Library also provides access to print materials. You can check-out books (including select textbooks) from our collection or request books (for FREE) from other libraries. We are a member of the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC), an organization of nine local universities that share print and digital resources. 

    Speaking of online resources, the Library provides access to over 250 databases full of articles, newspapers, primary sources, e-books, video, audio, data sets, and more! You can explore our A-to-Z Resource List to see all our databases. If you're off-campus, just log-in with your UDC email.

    Not sure where to start looking for material? Check out our Research Guides. These librarian curated guides provide our best picks for finding resources in different subjects and areas of study. There is a guide for every program taught at UDC and a few specialty topic guides as well. 


    Assistance and Help

    Have a question? Just ask! Our librarians provide support in using our resources and doing research.

    We can help you get started, find sources and information, evaluate sources, cite sources, and more! 


    Learn More

    If you want to fire up your research skills, enroll in Library 101! This self-paced tutorial program in Blackboard walks you through what you need to know about research and using information. Each semester, we also offer webinars to help you learn more about research. You can see the current schedule and register to attend (or get the recordings) on our Events page.

    Stay up to do with what the library offers by subscribing to our monthly newsletter.

    Have a great semester!
