From our expansive digital and print collections to our innovative services, programs, and partnerships, the UB Libraries provide you with many ways to explore your interests and make meaningful connections and discoveries.

Looking for a place to study?

There are plenty of comfortable, safe places to study in the Libraries. We have silent, individual spaces for studying alone, as well as group study areas where you can work with others on class projects and assignments. Use our online tool to reserve group study rooms in the UB Libraries.

Searching for materials?

Begin your research with our Everything Search to find physical and online materials in the Libraries. Our Everything Search gives you the ability to search UB library collections and SUNY campus catalogs, all in one place, all at one time.

Need library materials delivered?

Delivery+ is the free delivery service the University at Buffalo Libraries use to provide library materials for active faculty, staff and students to support their teaching, learning and research needs. Use Delivery+ to request materials from the UB Libraries or any library in the world.
