About the Library

Students studying in the Farber Mezzanine.

Farber Mezzanine

The Brandeis Library houses more than 2 million volumes (both electronic and physical), 45,000 journals (both electronic and physical) and 4,000 films, with a growing collection in the sciences, creative arts, humanities, government documents, Judaica and social sciences—including rare and unique collections.

We empower people to become creators and innovators. In our 21st-century library, reference and research services provide more than resources and citation help. Librarians often provide consultation sessions, embed themselves in classroom teaching, and offer workshops to support emerging trends in research such as data visualization, open access, and information literacy. Resources such as the Research Help Desk give students the skills needed to achieve their learning goals.

Identity Statement

The Brandeis Library makes an impact across our community by fostering research, teaching, and discovery, and by providing professional services, resources, experience, and expertise.
