J. Robert Van Pelt and John and Ruanne Opie Library

Welcome to the Van Pelt & Opie Library!


Welcome to the J. Robert Van Pelt and John and Ruanne Opie library! We are excited to help you succeed this year. To get a sense of the services, resources, and tools we offer (and where you'll be in 10 years!) take our Day at the Library Quiz (below). To see the physical library space, explore our Virtual Tour. To learn more about how the library's subscription resources can help you, visit the 'Can I Just Google It?' tab.

We know you're getting a lot of information during your first weeks on campus, so this page will stay up all semester for you to refer back to. The More Info tab has links and FAQs that will be helpful as you work through your projects and assignments this year. We are here to help you succeed - stop by and see us (in person or virtually) at your library!
