Hi, Internet Explorer user!

Did you know IE is discontinued? We appreciate technology from the past too (microform, anyone?), but this site utilizes modern browser features not found in IE, so we recommend it be viewed in Chrome, Firefox or Edge.

University Libraries are suspending in-person services until further notice. We are moving to a completely virtual operation, and we will continue to serve the UAlbany community with research assistance, electronic resources, and more. For more, please visit COVID-19 Changes
