Main Collections at DU Libraries

Housed in Anderson Academic Commons and the Hampden Center, DU Libraries' off-site storage facility, the Libraries' Main Collections offers access to over five million items that support research, continuing education, and general enrichment of life. Making these items available to the DU community requires continual updates to print and electronic book titles, journals, databases, media and more.

Our dedicated library workers are responsible for the book you need making its way to you, the journal article you read online being transferred to you through interlibrary loan, the streaming movie you watch playing without interruption. And our subject librarians work closely with DU faculty and students to inform collection building.

Take a look at the options in the Collections dropdown menu for more specifics and information. Should you have any questions or concerns about the Main Collections, email Shannon Tharp, Collections & Content Management Librarian, at
