On This Page

The information on this page is divided into the following areas:

Introduction

The ASU Library has 7 buildings spread across the four campuses in the Phoenix metropolitan area:

The Tempe campus also has a Law Library that is operated by the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law.

 

ASU Library

For students in the WP Carey School of Business, the majority of your printed material will be located in the Hayden Library on the Tempe campus. It is important to note that with major online programs and classes offered on all campuses, the most important business resources are online.   

In addition to books and journals in print, all of the libraries also provide PC workstations (asurite required) from which you can reach not only library material but also "My Apps" provided by the University Technology Office.   Or use your laptop or tablet -- ASU wifi is available throughout the libraries and immediately outside; electrical outlets are available but a large concentration is in the "community center" areas of the libraries.  The libraries also provide headphones, power strips, usb drives and scientific calculators that you can check out at the information desk.

The library provides a variety of study spaces including comfy chairs, tables for four or more, individual desks, whiteboards and projection screens. 

See details on the location and availability of study areas and rooms at specific libraries.

 

The library uses "traffic signal" signs to differentiate the spaces:  

Green light - group study

The "community center," is where groups are encouraged to meet. Tables can be arranged into different configurations so that both large and small groups can meet. Whiteboards on wheels can be moved to where needed and a packet of multi-colored dry erase markers and erasers can be checked out at the information desk for use with the whiteboards. Because this is a group study area, talking and cell phone conversations are permitted.

Groups are also permitted in the enclosed study rooms - these rooms are "first come, first served", but may need to be reserved. Use the information links to individual libraries on the study rooms information page to see if reservations can be made for the rooms in a specific library. 

Yellow light - quiet study 

Some open areas are for quiet study; please do not meet in groups or use cell phones in these areas. If talking is needed, be brief and keep voices low.

Red light - silent study

The silent study areas are for silent study. No talking or cell phone use is permitted in these areas.
