New Library Website & URL

The new website may not be as exciting as a Falcon 9 launch, but it will help you navigate faster to the services and resources you need.

We’ve moved! Following months of consultation with Regent’s web development team, the Library has launched a completely redesigned website. The new website has been constructed to provide intuitive navigation to all our resources and services for both desktop and mobile use. The webpages feature a clean, best practice look with one-click access to the most important pages on the site. The website also has a new URL: The librarians hope the new website will offer an improved, more efficient experience for both online and on-campus users. Please send any comments to
