We're here to help you succeed

Serving the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, the John Brown Watson Memorial Library System provides foundational support for course work and research in various academic fields of study. Library staff organize, preserve, and share resources to meet the information needs of the university community, providing access to resources essential to research, teaching, and service. Our building provides both the physical space and the intellectual environment for students to connect, collaborate, learn, and construct new knowledge. Library staff go beyond the role of information concierges, teaching important information literacy and research skills. If you do not find what you need on the website, please come to the library where you will find an extensive collection of print and electronic resources selected to support the research needs of the university.
