Libraries

The Johnson & Wales University library network is comprised of the libraries on the JWU campuses in Providence, Rhode Island; North Miami, Florida; Denver, Colorado; and Charlotte, North Carolina, and combines traditional library services with a dynamic online information environment tailored to meet the needs of Johnson & Wales students on and off campus.

Staffed by graduates of ALA-accredited master’s degree programs in library and information science, a notable characteristic of the library is its commitment to the development of lifelong learning skills and information literacy in all JWU graduates. In addition, a key mission of the library is enhancing the pedagogical, professional and scholarly achievements of JWU faculty. During operating hours, staff are available to offer assistance on how to effectively use library resources and find the most pertinent information for assignments.

To further enhance student learning, librarians provide formal and informal instruction in optimal methods of information discovery and application, partnering with faculty to integrate information literacy components into the curriculum.

The Charlotte Campus library is located in Gateway Village. Visit the Charlotte Campus Library webpage for links to online resources, user guides, contact information and hours of operation.
