Libraries

The Johnson & Wales University library network is comprised of the libraries on 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.

Located between the University Center and the Academic & Student Center, the library on the North Miami campus includes a collection of books, journals, magazines, full-text databases and other resources to serve the research needs of all Johnson & Wales students. Other resources include access to computers, collaborative learning spaces, private study carrels, soft seating, a photocopier and wireless internet connectivity throughout the facility.
