The Miami University Libraries have many services and facilities of interest to students. There are several libraries on the Oxford campus. Each library specializes in specific fields or departments, so you can find a place to research, study, or talk with a librarian who specializes in your area of study. King Library, a scholarly hub of Oxford campus life for more than 40 years, houses the Howe Writing Center, ELL Writing Center, King Café, and more. Amos Music Library is located in Room 120 of the Center for Performing Arts. Wertz Art & Architecture Library is located in Alumni Hall, and houses the collections for all of the visual arts.
