Ranked among the top 25 academic research libraries in North America, the Emory Libraries serve as an intellectual commons for the entire university. The libraries make a wide range of assets available to the university community and the public, including more than 3.9 million print and electronic volumes, 83,000-plus electronic journals, and internationally renowned special collections.
The Robert W. Woodruff Library delivers a broad array of services to the students and faculty of Emory University, from workshops and classes to one-on-one instruction. A hub of academic services, the library hosts a branch of the Writing Center where students may access assistance with all aspects of writing. In addition, the library houses the Goizueta Business Library, which supports the rigorous demands of Emory’s top-tier business school.
The Oxford College Library, located in a newly renovated facility on the Oxford campus, provides resources, services, and instruction to enhance the intellectual and personal growth of students. Other campus libraries primarily serve the graduate and professional schools, including the Woodruff Health Sciences Library, Pitts Theology Library, and the Hugh F. MacMillan Law Library.
The Woodruff Library also houses the Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL), where students, scholars, and other visitors can browse rare books, read original letters and manuscripts, and listen to rare recordings. MARBL’s renowned collections span more than 800 years of human history—with particular depth in modern literature, African American history, Emory University history, U.S. civil rights, and the history and politics of Georgia and the South. Emory students have the same access to these collections as do faculty and visiting researchers from around the world.
