About the RFK Library

University of Guam Library, housed in the Tan Siu Lin Building, a unit of Learning Resources, is the central library facility at the University of Guam / Unibetsedat Guåhan. As the largest library in the Micronesia region, the Library's collections include over 119,000 print titles and 213,916 print holdings; over 5,000 microfilm/microfiche units, 55 print serial titles; 7,718 audiovisual items and software; over 200, 000 eBooks; and a wealth of subscriptions to electronic full text academic periodicals.

The library’s OneSearch federated search service allows students, faculty, staff and other cardholders to access the library’s collection and electronic resources both on and off campus. Electronic Database Resources offer nearly 28,845  full-text periodicals, including peer-reviewed journals.  New acquisitions and databases are selected to enhance academic quality by supporting the University’s classes, research and professional needs.

The Tan Siu Lin building provides more than 54,000 square feet of usable book stack, reading, classroom, conference and office space. The building has two floors, including a second-floor Mezzanine.
 
As an academic, higher education facility, the Library maintains a quiet atmosphere, conducive to study and research. The needs of University of Guam students and faculty members take top priority at the Library. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Adults who bring children into the building are responsible for directly supervising their conduct.
