The University Library delivers its services from two facilities. The main library, the William Knox Holt Memorial Library, provides resources in the humanities, fine arts, social sciences, music, business, education, natural and physical sciences, and engineering. The focus of the Health Sciences Branch is on pharmacy and physical therapy resources. These facilities offer a variety of study settings, including carrels, large tables, lounge areas, and group study rooms. Independent of the facilities, a rapidly increasing number of network-based library resources are available throughout the campus, around the clock. The Legal Studies Center on the Sacramento Campus houses the law library.
