At the heart of the various UNC library locations around campus are the people who support students, faculty and community members, María Estorino, vice provost for University Libraries and university librarian, said.
Each library location serves as a service point for the libraries as a whole, Estorino said. Staff are available in each library to provide students with necessities like study spaces, help with assignments, access to materials or training.
Three of the most-visited libraries on campus are Davis Library, the Undergraduate Library and Wilson Library.
Davis holds research collections for the humanities and social sciences, and includes specialized information such as government documents and datasets. Students can also utilize its eight floors for studying.
Suchi Mohanty, head of the Undergraduate Library and the interim director of access services for the University Libraries, said that Davis implemented noise zone guidelines last fall to give students guidance in finding a study space to fit their needs.
The Undergraduate Library has collections geared towards first- and second-year undergraduate students. Mohanty said the library also has a collection of popular titles and its media collection is used by undergraduates, graduates and faculty for research.
Wilson Library is the home of the Special Collections, where students and other researchers use primary sources specializing in the American South and campus history.
Many in-person and online exhibitions are also offered to provide the opportunity for students to learn about items from the Special Collections, even when they aren't in Wilson Library.
