Welcome (back)! The Armacost Library is here to support you.

Of course you expect to be able to borrow books from the library, both e-books and in print. But we also have many DVDs--feature films, television shows, and excellent documentary films. More interested in music? We have music available on CDs, streaming, and on vinyl.

Searching for articles (scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers)? The library purchases access to 123 multi-disciplinary and subject-specific databases. Your librarians have created guides to the core databases in each of the major/minor disciplinary programs available at University of Redlands.

Business research guide:

If you can't find what you need at Armacost Library, we can get it for you from another library easily (usually)! We can get most books through our Link+ service, and it takes only a day or two for books to arrive. Look for the Link+ button in the library catalog. Articles can be requested through Interlibrary Loan: When you see the Find Full Text button next to an article in one of our databases, click through to Interlibrary Loan if we don't have the article. Most articles will arrive within days; we'll email to let you know it's available online. We can get almost anything in the world for you; all you have to do is ask.

The Armacost Library offers a variety of study spaces: individual study carrels, large group study tables, soft comfortable seating, and two group study rooms.

Computers and printers are available both in the Library and in the Fletcher Jones Computing Center (computer lab and several smaller collaborative learning spaces) on the first floor of the building.

Your librarians are here to help you with research projects and other assignments. Research assistance is available M-Th 9am-9pm, F 9am-5pm, Sat. 10am-5pm, and Sun. 1-9pm. Ask at the main desk for the librarian on-call. You can also call, chat, email, and make an appointment with your subject librarians. After hours, these subject research guides my help you out.

If you're having trouble finding your way, these floor maps of Armacost Library may help.

Please don't hesitate to contact us, let us know what you need. We're only a few steps, a phone call, a chat window, and an email away.

Good luck with the first week of classes!
