The ASU Library remains committed to supporting the health and success of the ASU community.
As of July 19, 2021, access to university library buildings no longer requires a Sun Card.
Face coverings are optional for those who are vaccinated, food/drink are now permitted in the library, and furniture has been restored in libraries where it had been removed to allow for physical distancing.
With summer session hours in place, be sure to check library hours before you visit.
The ASU Library can help you with whatever you need. While you can connect with library support via a variety of platforms, this is generally a good place to start: Ask A Librarian.
The ASU Library is home to some cool research and collab spaces, including the Labriola National American Indian Data Center and the Map and Geospatial Hub. While all library research and archive units remain open, this summer you will need to make a reservation for some of them:
In honor of November being Native American Heritage Month, a team of student workers in the ASU Library's Labriola National American Indian Data Center have curated two book displays, one at Hayden Library and one at Fletcher Library, around six different themes that contribute to Indigenous self-empowerment and self-determination.
The #LandBack book displays, created by ASU student Mia Johnson, in collaboration with Lourdes Pereira and Shaleigh Yazzie, invite the ASU community to explore written works that can lead to a better understanding of Indigenous perspectives and Indigenous resiliency.
Part of a global movement demanding the return of all public lands to Indigenous people, #LandBack has gained notoriety on social media over the past year.
"The goals of the Land Back movement align with past Native activist movements, like the Red Power movement of the 1960s and 1970s, #IdleNoMore in 2012, and #NoDAPL in 2016," write the students. "As we celebrate Native American Heritage Month, the Labriola Center feels that it is improtant to remember who we are and why we fight. As Indigenous peoples, we need to center ourselves within our own communities in order to understand what #LandBack means to us. By doing so, we can come together to effectively advocate for our communities."
What does #LandBack mean to you?
#1 Education and History
Education is the biggest equalizer within Western society. It is the key to leading future generations into a progressive future. History is also a vital part of understanding how society is structured in today’s world, and it is important to know where we have been in order to choose the right path for the present. Unfortunately, Indigenous perspectives are typically left out of whitewashed educational systems, erasing the history of the Indigenous Peoples throughout the world. The histories of genocide, forced removal from ancestral territories, ethnic cleansing, historical trauma, and forced assimilation are not fully acknowledged by the dominant settler society. This perpetuates false narratives that there were no civilized societies before settlers came, and also omits that settlers raped and systematically murdered Indigenous Peoples and pillaged their land and resources. To this day, the United States school system does not educate its students on colonialism, leaving them ignorant of true Indigenous histories. For these reasons, books by and for Indigenous People are important to counteract settler narratives and to uplift Indigenous resiliency.
There are over 500 federally recognized tribes within the United States, each with their own sovereign powers and government to government relationship with states. The Indigenous Peoples who reside in the United States are not just an ethnicity, they are also a political entity.
Tribal nations in the United States each had their own sovereignty and forms of governance prior to colonization. Contemporary sovereignty means that tribal nations can self-govern how they see fit. The federal government is supposed to acknowledge tribal nations and their sovereignty to claim independent identity, determine citizenship, and be stewards of their lands. It is an ongoing fight for the federal government to uphold their legal promises to tribal nations, codified in treaties for many tribes. Since tribal nations are a political entity, knowledge of federal law and Indian law is crucial when fighting against the massive injustices that the Indigenous Peoples of North America have survived.
Indigenous Peoples pass down their stories and songs orally, often with the use of metaphor and rooted in deep knowledge of the natural world. This is how traditional knowledge has stayed within tribes from generation to generation. Indigenous literature, whether we are aware or not, is an extension of storytelling in contemporary times. Keeping these stories alive is not only important to culture, but also to remember why our people are strong and resilient. Humor is a key coping strategy for many Indigenous Peoples, and in many of the books selected here, readers will see examples of how Indigenous storytellers use humor to deflect pain, poke fun at stereotypes, and recognize our shared experiences. Stories set in contemporary times validate the humanity of Indigenous Peoples, and teach the realness of Indigineity to readers who may not have many other experiences with Indigenous Peoples.
#4 Language and Culture
It is impossible to learn Indigenous language without knowing the culture of the people. Traditional Indigenous languages teach Indigenous identity and offer a lens for viewing the land, food, patterns in nature, health, government, family, etc. Ancestral knowledge keeps Indigenous Peoples connected to their culture. Due to past Indigenous advocates, more schools offer Indigenous language classes. For instance, ASU offers Navajo and O’odham language classes. Learning the language is a way for Indigenous Peoples to revitalize their identity and deconstruct colonial structures, since English was forced onto the Indigenous Peoples of North America in order to assimilate them into colonial society. Keeping languages alive for future generations is a very important form of resilience.
#5 Music and Graphic Novels
Music and dance have always played major roles within Indigenous cultures. Traditional songs embody lifeways and contain teachings, and singing has always been a vital part of Indigeneity. Traditional songs unify ancestral knowledge and aesthetic expressions of spiritual experiences. In contemporary times, Indigenous Peoples have inserted their musical expressions and cultures through modern music styles. For example, Indigenous youth often connect with subcultures that use music as a resilience strategy and protective factor. Modern music plays a huge part in expressing the experiences of Indigenous Peoples as they assert their identities, and this has been channelled through hip-hop, punk, metal, country, jazz, electronica, and waila.
Similarly, many Native illustrators and authors have created graphic novels. The artwork in graphic novels makes it easier to visualize decolonial realities since it re-imagines Indigeneity. Archetypes that can be found across tribal (and world) cultures, such as Trickster, Twins, Little People, Witch, Devil/Horned Monster are often woven into the contemporary settings of graphic novels, as well as other timeless stories that many Indigenous Peoples share, such as flood stories, death/rebirth, pandemics, and morning star stories.
#6 Gender and Sexuality
Indigenous Peoples have always understood the range of genders and the spectrum of sexuality. The Puritanism of America’s first settlers was incorporated into later waves of colonization, and through processes of social change in Indigenous societies adapting to settlers, rigid views on gender and sexuality became entrenched in many Indigenous cultures. Any expressions of gender norms or sexuality that conflicted with the patriarchal and misogynist attitudes of settler society eventually came to be prohibited or discouraged in many tribal communities. Settler colonialism has obscured our original teachings about gender and sexuality. Decolonizing tribal perspectives on gender and sexuality is part of the solution to addressing gender-based and sexual violence in our communities.
Arizona State University is set to resume on-campus, in-person classes on August 20, 2020. In preparation, the ASU Library has begun a phased re-opening of its eight libraries:
August 6: Music Library
August 10: Fletcher Library and Noble Library
August 13: Downtown Phoenix campus Library and Polytechnic campus Library
August 17: Hayden Library
August 20: Design and the Arts Library
In coordination with the university's COVID-19 precautions, a Sun Card will be required to enter all libraries, as access will be limited to ASU students, faculty and staff. Non-ASU visitors are welcome by appointment only.
Those in the ASU community are encouraged to check library hours before making their visit, as ASU Library operational hours will differ from previous academic years.
The ASU Library is open for remote services only during summer sessions A, B and C.
For questions related to the library, research, library collections and other archival materials, Ask a Librarian is a click, text, email or call away.
Ask a Librarian connects the ASU community with library professionals who are standing by to assist you with any research question and who’ve abundant strategies on how to find high quality resources. The online chat service has extended its hours: Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m.-9 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
While Hayden Library has been quieter these days, the library’s 3D printers have been humming all week – thanks to Victor Surovec and the round-the-clock work he and his staff are undertaking, as part of Arizona State University’s COVID-19 emergency response.
Over the last week, Surovec, the Program Coordinator for the ASU Library Makerspace, has been the only human in a space defined by collaboration, helping ASU produce hundreds, possibly thousands, of face masks and face shields, in critical short supply, for those working on the front lines of the pandemic.
“It’s a big ASU effort and I'm proud that the Makerspace is part of it,” said a sleep-deprived and socially-distanced Surovec via Zoom call on Tuesday afternoon. “I’ve got seven 3D printers going constantly. I’m in production mode.”
Working amidst a pandemic is challenging enough, but Surovec says his work is complicated further by the fact that the Makerspace was not designed for mass producing supplies but rather prototyping solutions to real-world challenges.
“All the machines are different, requiring different software, so each machine means a new project," he said. "It’s time consuming and labor intensive, but it’s all we have right now. I’m trying to find that happy medium between quality and quantity given the circumstances.”
The Makerspace is just one of many ASU units that has been repurposed to help combat COVID-19.
Surovec, who has been riding his bike to campus every day to get some fresh air and keep his spirits up, sees libraries as unique, collaborative spaces where maker culture can thrive. He says he’s looking forward to a time when the ASU community can come back together again in the same space.
“The strength of the Makerspace is collaboration, where you tackle a problem together, and doing this in a space where you have access to all the needed stuff, the tools, the resources," he said. "It enables us to do things in a cleaner, more creative and efficient way. But, right now, we just have to get these supplies out to the medical field.”
That’s top priority, he said.
Victor Surovec has been making stuff his whole life. He holds a BFA in Sculpture from Arizona State University and has more than a decade of experience working in makerspaces, where he has taught everything from woodworking to 3D printing, to learners of all ages, from 12 to 80. He is interested in the connections between project-based learning, community collaboration and the creative spaces that support innovation.
With a focus on marginalized student identities (African American, LGBTQ, Chicano/a, differently abled, Asian Americans, Indigenous populations, etc.), the symposium seeks to center underrepresented communities and their varying intersections, and the need for community-driven archives.
The symposium invites ASU students, faculty and community members committed to activism and social justice for two days of panel discussions, performances, a Latinx history walking tour, and other activities in Hayden Library.
The ASU Library and its Community-Driven Archives team are pleased to welcome keynote speaker, Reyna Montoya, the founder and CEO Of Aliento, a community organization that is DACA, undocumented and youth-led, and Documenting the Now, a tool and community developed around supporting the ethical collection, use and preservation of social media content.
Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Project STAND symposium will feature a variety of performances (hip-hop, opera and dance) and panel discussions, including:
Emerging Voices of Student Activism in Indigenous Communities
Hear first-hand from student activists in the ASU indigenous community. Traditionally, student voices in the indigenous community have not been well represented in archival collections. How can we build relationships, increase trust and understanding, and perhaps empower indigenous students to capture their own histories?
Archives as Activist Praxis in Arizona
Preserving diverse voices in community and institutional archives is a form of resistance against sytemic oppression. This panel will focus on past and current student activism at ASU and in Arizona, and how students at diverse levels of the educational pipeline are using archives to create and preserve counter-narratives.
Representation and Overcoming Silences in University Archives
How can institutions better represent marginalized communities in University Archives collections? Given the mandate and mission of University Archives (to capture the history of an institution), how can professionals support students as the creators and custodians of their own histories?
The Future of Community-Driven Archives in Arizona
Archivists and community archivists in Arizona are working to address issues of underrepresentation and exclusion in Arizona's historical records. This panel will address the work being done to develop community-driven archives around the state and the future of archival practice in Arizona.
All ASU faculty are invited to an interactive open house on the third floor of the newly renovated Hayden Library to learn more about and get connected with the ASU Library’s researcher support resources.
Researcher Support is part of the library's full suite of services aimed at supporting researchers across all phases of the research life cycle – everything from grant funding to data management and data storage.
The open house slated for Wednesday, Feb. 19, from 2 to 4 p.m., is an opportunity to:
Join other researchers in learning about new and expanding resources to support research projects.
Meet with a diverse group of experts who can help you identify research and funding opportunities.
Experience hands-on demonstrations and information sessions.
Learn more about the ASU Library and Knowledge Enterprise Development partnership.
On Arizona State University’s most populous campus, a welcome gift has arrived for Sun Devils on the first day of the spring semester — a sleek, new, state-of-the-art library.
Capping off a $90 million renovation, ASU’s Hayden Library, originally built in 1966, has been reinvented and reopened for the 21st century, with an eye toward maximum accessibility, engagement and support for the university’s growing student population.
Hayden Library’s revamped five-story tower, which sits at the center of ASU’s Tempe campus, now features nearly double the student space, enhanced study areas, community-driven book collections, two reading rooms, a variety of research services and interdisciplinary learning labs, and an entire floor devoted to innovation.
Spectacular campus views and abundant natural light, courtesy of floor-to-ceiling windows and the Arizona sun, come as a bonus, says University Librarian Jim O’Donnell.
While many of Hayden’s iconic midcentury design elements remain, there are some wonderful additions too, including a gold staircase — a nod to Sun Devil spirit — and a welcome mural honoring indigenous cultures, directed by Wanda Dalla Costa, an architect and professor in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts.
There are hallways that literally sparkle.
“Everything about Hayden is meant to make students feel at home and comfortable and supported — so it can be the place where they can reach higher, go farther and surprise themselves with the success they’re capable of,” said O’Donnell.
Following the 22-month construction and closure of Hayden tower, perhaps the most obvious indication of the library’s reinvention can be seen in its wide and welcoming plaza and above-ground entryways — a striking departure from the underground entrance that has been used solely since 1989.
Upon entering, visitors are greeted by two large and stately reading rooms, designed to draw attention and provide greater access to the ASU Library’s Distinctive Collections, encompassing millions of primary source materials, rare and unique objects spanning centuries.
Although the dust may still be settling in Hayden Library, one thing is clear: The books are back.
It took approximately 20 days, 30 truckloads and 9,000 new shelves to bring the books back to Hayden — along with four years of careful planning for how those books would be displayed, curated and delivered, and how they would best serve the university community.
Now, over 30 different collections are on the shelves and ready for exploration.
"Our team employed a community-centered and data-informed approach to designing the collections for Hayden Library," said Lorrie McAllister, associate university librarian for collections services and strategy, who leads the ASU Library’s Future of Print initiative.
With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, this three-year initiative to reinvent the future of print for ASU explores the interests, needs and expectations of 21st-century academic library users.
"We are grateful for the chance to experiment and activate our open stacks as opportunities for engagement and inquiry," McAllister said.
In 2017, McAllister co-authored a widely shared white paper on emerging design practices that is now shaping the curation and delivery of academic library print collections at ASU at a time when campus space and digital resources are in high demand.
As a result of this work, ASU students, faculty and staff will encounter a series of newly featured collections on nearly every floor of Hayden Library — collections such as "Untold Histories" and "The Southwest Before the U.S."
These collections and others like them have been selected and curated in collaboration with ASU students and faculty. Each collection is university-inspired and strategic in design, driven by data and reader interest.
"A great example of how the 'Future of Print' project has influenced the Hayden collections design is our new Sun Devil Reads collection, designed with students and in-person browsing in mind, organized by themes and with lots of eye-catching cover art," McAllister added.
While many books have returned to Hayden Library and are being showcased in new and inviting ways, those books that have not returned to Hayden will be housed at Noble Library or in the ASU Library’s high-density collection at the Polytechnic campus, where they will be available for fast-turnaround delivery.
Last semester, the ASU Library began offering book delivery and self-service lockers for the quick and convenient pickup and return of library materials.
As the renovation of Hayden Library comes to a close this month, an exciting milestone is afoot: the return of the books.
Each day, thousands of books make their way back to Hayden Library, in anticipation of the library's re-opening for the first day of the Spring 2020 semester on Monday, January 13.
Once shelved, the books will have a whole new look, as the concept of open stack collections has been redesigned for ultimate engagement.
Backed by data analysis and deep conversations with the ASU community, the print collections that will appear in Hayden Library will be more visible and usable, more flexible and user-driven, and more inclusive and high quality for ASU's students and scholars.
Learn more about the new open stack print collections coming to Hayden Library in January 2020.
In addition, the ASU Library has set out to increase, enhance and diversify student study spaces in the new and improved Hayden.
Moving away from the study zone system of the past, the ASU Library has implemented a variety of work and study options. Learn more about the study spaces coming to Hayden Library.
Arizona State University will host the fourth national forum of Project STAND (Student Activism Now Documented) for a two-day symposium on the importance of student activism and the need to document historically marginalized voices.
With a focus on marginalized student identities (African American, LGBTQ, Chicano/a, differently abled, Asian Americans, Indigenous populations, etc.), the ASU Library aims to center underrepresented communities and their varying intersections, and the need for community-driven archives.
Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the symposium is an invitation to students, faculty and community members committed to activism and social justice. Individuals and small groups are invited to submit a proposal on topics relating to the symposium’s theme: “Archiving from the Intersections and Community-Driven Archives.”
Topics might include:
Privacy, ethics, power of consent
Student activism as emotional labor
Students as creators, custodian and historian
Silences in the archives
Archivists as activists
Community-driven archives and outreach
Digital inclusion and preservation
Language and representation
Intergenerational and intersectional archives
Generational trauma and healing
Right to be forgotten
The deadline for proposals is Friday, December 13. Proposals should be no more than 300 words. Notification of acceptance is January 10, 2020. For more information, contact Assistant University Archivist Shannon Walker at email@example.com
Are you a student, staff or faculty member at ASU interested in collaborating on research and/or building your data research skills?
Then come join us for Open Lab, a weekly event taking place every Wednesday to get connected with ongoing and available projects that engage maching learning, data visualization, text and data mining, network analysis and more.
Whether you're a student, faculty member or researcher, all are welcome to join Open Lab, which is divided into two sessions, occurring every Wednesday beginning Sept. 11:
Data science for newcomers: 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Advanced projects and topics: 1 to 3 p.m.
Based in Hayden Library and affiliated with the Biosocial Complexity Initiative, the Unit for Data Science and Analytics provides opportunities for project-based work and learning. All disciplines and skill levels are welcome.
The Unit for Data Science and Analytics also mentors students and teams in formulating their own experiments and studies. One of its main goals is to cohort students and set them up with project experience that they can use in their academic and professional careers.
The popularity of data science has grown steadily over the last decade with the advent of big data and the much-buzzed-about analyses of Nate Silver.
In 2012, the Harvard Business Review coined data science “the sexiest job of the 21st century.” This year, USA Today named it one of the fastest-growing, highest-paying jobs in the U.S.
Leaders in the technology industry, from commerce to computing, are intently focused on getting as much knowledge from data as possible.
Now, the wrangling of data to uncover solutions, make predictions, formulate deeper questions and identify opportunities has found a home at the university library.
Michael Simeone, director of Data Science and Analytics at ASU Library, sees Arizona State University as an ideal ecosystem for the applications of data science and the library as a critical resource to support it.
The key, he says, is collaboration.
“Data science isn’t done in isolation. It’s inherently collective and interdisciplinary, which is why ASU is the perfect place for it,” said Simeone, an assistant research professor affiliated with the Biosocial Complexity Initiative, the Department of English, the Institute for Social Science Research, and the School of Sustainability. “My focus at the library is connecting researchers with information and with each other.”
Along with fellow data scientist David Little, Simeone aims to spread that message Sept. 17–21 as part of Data Science Week, a series of open-house events for students and faculty to gauge interest and raise awareness about the new library lab and the research and partnership opportunities it can foster.
Come speak out on behalf of the books, ideas and works of art that have been banned, censored or challenged throughout human history.
In recognition of Banned Books Week, an annual celebration of books and our right to read them, ASU Library is hosting a Read Out, a public reading of books, newspapers, plays and other texts that have been banned, challenged or restricted in some way, or that speak to the issue of freedom of speech.
The Read Out will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 25, on the north side of the Memorial Union on the Tempe campus.
The theme for this year’s Banned Books Week, sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA), is “Speak Out.”
Events related to Banned Books Week are set to take place at all ASU libraries on all campuses during Banned Books Week, which is September 23-30, 2018.
Tell us what kind of opportunities you’re interested in – learning, research, collaboration – and we’ll be in touch with ongoing and available projects that engage machine learning, data visualization, text and data mining, network analysis and more.

For the first time ever, thousands of high-quality archival materials – photographs, documents and correspondence – chronicling the early history of Grand Canyon National Park (1890-1940) have been made digitally available to the public through a partnership between ASU Library, Northern Arizona University’s Cline Library and Grand Canyon National Park.
Coined 100 Years of Grand, the project commemorates the upcoming centennial of the legislative creation of Grand Canyon National Park in February 1919 and aims to enhance public understanding of the park’s history by weaving together several decades of cultural, geospatial, entrepreneurial, documentary and administrative archival history.
“Materials made accessible through this project will be of benefit to visitors to the park who may want to enhance their experience and historical understanding of the Grand Canyon,” said Rob Spindler, university archivist for ASU and the project’s director. “Students, teachers and historians at all educational levels will be able to acquire and reuse these materials for class lectures, assignments and related writings and research. Arizona businesses that rely on Grand Canyon tourism will also be able to use these materials in the development of their advertisement and marketing efforts.”
The archival materials – photographs, documents, ephemera, maps, correspondence and original manuscripts – have been digitized, presented and delivered via three Arizona repositories.
“The public can gain access to the materials through various ways, but the easiest would be through lib.asu.edu/Grand100,” Spindler said. “Many of the materials in the digital repositories have rarely been seen since they were created. These amazing artifacts tell a bigger story about Grand Canyon National Park.”
This project is supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute for Museum and Library Services.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
