A newly constructed study area is located on the 2nd floor East Wing of Doherty Library. This is prime real estate for studying! These tables are located right next to outlets that allow for all your charging necessities. The large study tables allow for spreading textbooks, laptops, and still have a room for your group. Did you know? Android & iPhone chargers are available for check out at the circulation desk. Stop by and check out a charger & head over to this new study spot today!
Books from the NA-PN part of the collection, the Young Adult section (PZ), along with the University Archives, are also now located in this part of the library.
This area originally held our British and American literature books (classified as PR and PS). These books have been relocated to the basement book stacks.
Itching for a new read? Look no further! New additions to the Popular books collections now available for check out and just in time! Books are on display in the Main Lobby and can be checked out to ALL UST community members at the Circulation Desk. These latest additions to our Popular Book Collection are thanks to a generous donation from the Student Government Association.

It’s our favorite time of the year, National Library Week! Every year we celebrate the importance of how libraries play a key role in transforming lives and strengthening our communities. This year’s theme, Libraries = Strong Communities, we are demonstrating how libraries are the center of our communities, cities, and campus.
During National Library Week, we asked students to tell us “how does the library help you make UST strong?” Those who gave a statement got a free popcorn bag and treat!
Here is some of the feedback we’ve received!
Tuesday marked National Library Worker’s Day and as a great way to say a BIG THANK YOU. We wanted to show recognition for all that do in the library!
Looks like our fellow celts are showing the love to inspire the community to read! You can still donate new or like new children books here @doherylibrary, or at the Crooker Center, CSHP. #HoUSTon #BeBold #NationalLiteracyAwarenessMonth
