The W. E. B. Du Bois Library is the largest public academic research library in all of Massachusetts, and the tallest university library in the world. It’s clear from the towering size of the library that it truly is something special. I consider the library to be the North Star of the UMass Amherst campus. If I’m ever lost or slightly confused about my location, I look to the library looming in the horizon to reorient myself. The library is so big, and has so many services that it’s impossible to take advantage of, or even know, all of them. So, I’m going to tell you about some of the coolest floors and services that the library has to offer.
