Welcome to KU Libraries!
A large research library can be overwhelming for new students and more so if you are adjusting to life in a new country. Please know that the librarians at KU Libraries are here to help with your information (research) needs. If you're new to an American library system, don't hesitate to ask us for help. We are available in person - come see us at the Help Desk in any one of our seven libraries on the KU campus. We are also available via email, instant chat, or text messaging. We're never far away, so please contact us for research assistance.
