It also offers student access to 3D and virtual reality labs, a large video production studio, a state-of-the-art audio recording studio, two electronic music studios and two teleconferencing rooms. The library's engineering resources are among the most comprehensive in the country with large portions of its journal holdings being available electronically. The library's Special Collections and Visual Resources Collection (Imageworks) offer special resources to support the School of Art and Design, and the College of Architecture and Urban Planning.
