Just as you will be adjusting and adapting to new cultures, languages, and cuisines, RIT Libraries is constantly adapting to the changing needs of RIT and students like you! As of Fall 2021, the library has temporarily moved from our normal location in Wallace to the Ritter Ice Arena due to the construction of the SHED building on campus. Our physical collection of books can be found at Ritter, in addition to study areas, printers, computers, and helpful library staff members to answer your questions. More information on this move can be found here.

The easiest way to find books, journal articles, streaming videos, and more is to search the library website using the Summon search box on the front page.
After a search, you can choose what results you want to find by clicking on the different categories on the left side of the screen. For example, if you would like to find eBooks or articles available online, click on the Full Text Online option.
Tip: You can always email us your questions or if you have trouble finding an ebook. Depending on what time it is, you can also chat with us between the hours of 9am EST - 5pm EST Monday - Friday (due to time differences, you might find yourself studying at night while we are available for chat here in Rochester).
