New Libraries Website

The UH Libraries has launched a new web site designed to make it easier to use the Libraries' services and to better provide the reliable service you have come to expect. Featured on this new web site is a one-stop search box, research tutorials, subject specific research assistance, and pages designed specifically to highlight services of interest to faculty, graduate students and undergraduates. The web pages for our branch libraries have also been updated to highlight their specific services and resources.

Please note that the new site has been designed to perform best with the latest web browsers (Internet Explorer 7+, Firefox 2+, or Netscape 9+) and typical user screen resolution (1024 x 768 or higher).

We are always open to your comments and suggestions and hope you will use the Comments and Suggestion Form to send your feedback to us. We will be adding exciting features to the new web page over the course of the Fall semester and changing things based user feedback.
