Welcome to the River Campus Libraries
We appreciate your pursuit of scholarly interests at the University of Rochester. The primary goal of the River Campus Libraries is to support the instructional and research activities of the University of Rochester academic community. The students, faculty and staff of the University of Rochester are the Libraries’ primary clientele. We offer use of the Libraries to the public, but members of the public should first make thorough use of the public library and their own institutional library. Our Visitor Guidelines explain the resources and services available to guests at the River Campus Libraries.
