Academic Resources

You would be amazed at how much is available to make your academic experience as stress free as possible. You focus on studying, and we’ll take care of almost all the rest (and assist where we can with the studies, too).


The Merrill-Cazier Library has been serving Utah State University and the community of Logan since its completion in September 2005. With a state of the art automated retrieval system, full scale printing, scanning, and copying services, and the distinction of being one of the only repositories of government documents in the state of Utah, the Merrill-Cazier Library has much to offer to students and their families.

  • Study rooms: The library boasts over 150 computer workstations, multiple group study rooms (fourteen of which are outfitted with computers and LCD displays), multimedia suites, and individual workstations on all floors. Book a room for your study group here.
