Murrey Atkins Library have grown faster than at any comparable period in its history.  Most of these new collections are research journal backfiles that vastly expand the Library’s holdings, making them instantly available from any computer, to multiple users, with stronger preservation.  Best of all, these backfiles gave UNC Charlotte faculty access to articles equivalent to that found in much larger and older universities.

Students will have two new T1 Vision work tables to use, as soon as Atkins Library's new entrance project is completed.
