Welcome to Tulane University Libraries! On behalf of the talented team of library workers— archivists, curators, librarians, and other experts— I warmly welcome you as you join Tulane’s vibrant academic community.
Convening and celebrating community is at the heart of TU Libraries’ work. We develop collections to meet learning and research needs, steward the University’s scholarly estate, and preserve cultural heritage from the City of New Orleans. Your expertise and passion will inevitably enrich our libraries- you are already a partner in realizing our vision of Inspiring inquiry, enabling creativity, and enriching minds. Thank you.
As a faculty member at Tulane University, you now have access to a wealth of physical and digital resources designed to support your teaching, research, and professional growth. This Libray Guide is a great starting point to begin to explore them! Our dedicated team, the most valuable resource of all, is here to assist you in navigating Tulane’s wealth of collections, utilizing our cutting-edge technologies, and integrating information literacy into your curriculum. Our library spaces (including digital collections) are designed to provide rich environments of intellectual exploration and innovation where ever your research and learning take you.
We encourage you to explore our libraries and engage with us to discover how we can partner to enhance the academic experience for the Tulane community. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, suggestions, or requests for support.
