The Utah Tech University Library is located in the Holland Centennial Commons (HCC) and provides the resources necessary to facilitate research and enhance the curriculum and programs of the university.  The Library is also a part of Utah Academic Library Consortium, which provides many shared resources with other institutions in the state.

Instructors can put textbooks and class material on reserve at the circulation desk on the second floor that students can check out for designated periods of time.
