About the Library
John U. Tomlinson Library supports CMU's mission of exceptional teaching and academic excellence by providing professional librarians, diverse and comprehensive collections, information literacy instruction and assessment, and a variety of services offered by all of our Departments.
Librarians provide personalized research assistance to support both faculty and students, and are available to help students identify, evaluate, and ethically use information sources within and beyond the Library. Find our librarians at our Research Help Desk, by appointment, and by email, telephone, and our 24/7 instant messaging service.

Students, faculty and staff can borrow materials from CMU as well as other Colorado and regional libraries, including several large academic research libraries, with delivery to our Main and Montrose campuses, Western Colorado Community College Bishop campus, and to Distance Education students via many Colorado public libraries.
Tomlinson Library is a welcoming, comfortable environment, providing open and reservable study rooms, a 24-hour study space, computers, printing & scanning, IT support, convenient dining and café options, outdoor seating with a fire pit, and much more.
