The Julia Brooker Thompson Library houses approximately 16,000 books and videos titles. The collection is particularly strong in the areas of English, history, political science, psychology, sociology, family studies and art history.

The Torrington Campus Library is dedicated to serving the research needs of the students and faculty of the University of Connecticut. Our computer workstations are networked to the main campus and provide access to nearly 250 databases, growing collection of e-books and thousands of full-text reference sources and journal articles. The University of Connecticut Document Delivery / Interlibrary Loan (DD/ILL) service helps you obtain scans or loans of materials. These services are available without charge to UConn faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students to support academic research, instruction, and professional growth.

Research support is available from the library staff and through online chat. UConn faculty and instructors may request customized library instruction sessions for their classes. Contact sheila.lafferty@uconn.edu or submit an online form for instructional requests.

The library at the University of Connecticut Torrington Campus is named for Julia Brooker Thompson, a key figure in the beginnings of the University in the city of Torrington.
