With the Spring 2022 semester underway, Coogs are busy leaning into new schedules, new interests, and new goals. UH Libraries locations, including MD Anderson Library, Architecture, Design, and Art Library, Health Sciences Library, and Music Library, are the best places on campus to find books and print media, plus plenty of study space, but did you know that you can check out equipment, browse unique digital collections, or visit a virtual pop-up library?
This semester, explore something new at UH Libraries. Whether you’re on campus or studying remotely, you can:
Borrow a heart
Or a brain, available at Health Sciences Library, along with other anatomical models. Art and design students can check out basic tools, sculpting sets, and brushes. For those musically inclined, we have headphones, cameras, and mics. Also projectors, laptops, a laser cutter station, Raspberry Pi kits, dry erase markers, and much more equipment to borrow — just bring your Cougar Card for check-out or reservation.
OK, not really. But our revamped Digital Collections repository is home to an immersive assortment of digitized historical documents, images, video, and audio representing various locales and time periods. You can experience a vintage University of Houston from midcentury, early 20th century architecture of Rome, or DJ Screw’s recording sessions, to name a few.
Find out what your instructor means by “literature review”
Our librarians have compiled course guides and info lit videos that will help you zero in on scholarly resources and knock out that research paper.
See what’s new in collections from afar
Remember the thrill of book fairs? This is like that, only it’s online and free. Architecture, Design, and Art Library hosts virtual pop-up libraries that feature beautiful, engaging books from our collection that are available for check-out (access last semester’s pop-ups here).
