The Rod Library is more than a repository of books and periodicals at the University of Northern Iowa. It is an essential element of the campus learning community. The Library is both a gateway to historical and contemporary resources and a place where students, scholars and others come to imagine their future.
Our library provides a wealth of resources that support teaching, learning, and research across all departments. Thank you for your interest in supporting University of Northern Iowa Library!
