#GSULibraryJam

At GSU, The University Library is often considered the campus living room. Here, it is possible to find a quiet corner to study or group study rooms where students can work together. It's also where students, faculty, staff and the community can find study areas surrounded by art.

The resources of the Library are extensive, including membership in the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois. This gives you access to I-Share, the catalogs of 86 libraries across the state. If you're new to accessing books or information, one of our librarians will be there to guide you. You can even send a query online.
