A HUB OF
INNOVATION

The heart of research and discovery at Stony Brook

UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES

Stony Brook University is a global leader in research, discovery and learning. But that doesn’t happen by accident. It requires spaces that foster collaboration, examination and exploration. It means everyone from first-year undergraduates to postdoctoral fellows has access to physical and digital resources spanning thousands of topics. It means supporting scholarship at every level, for every member of the community.

By supporting the University Libraries, you help fuel the engine of discovery at Stony Brook. Our services and resources empower the smart minds on campus to go far beyond anyone’s expectations, including their own. By enhancing our ability to help disseminate, preserve and create new knowledge, we can maintain the University’s position as a research and learning powerhouse.
