Arlington Campus Library

The Arlington Campus Library (ACL) is located on the second floor of Van Metre Hall.


Collections support the research needs of  the School of Public Policy, the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, and the Master’s programs in Nonprofit Management and Arts Management.

Arlington Campus Library is designated as a European Union (EU) Document Depository, providing in-house access to non-circulating European Union documents for faculty, students and members of the public. The collection’s strengths lie in international governance, trade, and economic policy. In addition to those resources received as part of the EU depository program, the library collects additional resources that support inquiry and research on the EU. 


The library has nine study rooms designed for collaborative group work and studying. Also available for use is an Assistive Technology Room equipped with computers and specialized software applications for individuals with mobility, cognitive, visual and hearing impairments. The Dissertation Writers' Room contains five reservable study spaces for PhD students working on their dissertations.

Arlington Campus Library features 16 computers, a dedicated Advanced Datastream terminal, and a dedicated Data Services terminal providing access to the the Neighborhood Change Database, Stata, SPSS, and NVivo, for students, faculty and staff use.
