About Rod Library

Rod Library is the heart of UNI’s campus - providing students the collections, the services, and the comfortable and modern spaces they need to succeed at UNI. At the library, we are lucky to have an impact on students across all majors. 

Supporting the library is a way to support all of our students at UNI. With nearly 400,000 people walking through our doors and millions of unique searches and downloads of our collections annually, we know that our work is at the foundation of our students’ academic success.  

With your help, you can add to our capacity to purchase the collections - both print and digital - that support student work in all areas of study.  These are the collections that our students use to build their academic portfolios and experience and to position themselves to be tomorrow’s leaders.
