New Libraries’ Website

The University Libraries are happy to announce the launch of our new website, created in collaboration with the Office of Marketing. The new website will officially launch on August 3, 2022.

The new site features a modern design, improved functionality, and easier access to essential research services and resources for our students, faculty, and staff.

Easy Navigation

This new design will make it easier to navigate to the resources and information you use most. From the dropdown menu bar, you can easily access all pages on the website. And our Special Collections & Archives can be explored directly from the homepage.

Ask Us

You’ll still get the same high-quality research support and information you are used to, just with a slightly new name. Our Ask a Librarian and Ask an Archivist services have been rebranded as a combined Ask Us service to streamline communication and ensure the fastest response to all research and information questions. If you have any questions about where to find information on our new website, or anything else, look for the Ask Us Logo on any page. We’re here to help!

About the University Libraries

The website is just one of the tools the University Libraries uses to serve the Wright State community, but we recognize that for many in our campus community it’s the most common point to access all of the services and resources we offer. Our mission is to provide exceptional research services and resources to facilitate faculty and student success and by fostering innovation and life‐long learning in our diverse community. We are excited to streamline access to these services through the new website.
