Using library resources will give you access to licensed information that has been reviewed for quality and that is not available for free on the Web. You can download online articles from the library's research databases instantly and request books and other materials from libraries across the state wherever you have access to the World Wide Web.

Librarians and staff at all the Kent campuses are available to talk with you about your projects. They can connect you with high quality information on any subject in a variety of formats: print, online, and held at other libraries. Contact them in person, by telephone, email, or online chat.
