Conveniently located in the center of campus, the Library supports teaching, learning and research at MSU. Students, faculty, and community members have access to a full range of library collections and services, including computers, printers, scanners, technology-rich group study rooms, quiet study areas and the Brewed Awakening coffee shop. Knowledgeable and friendly professional librarians and staff provide assistance using the collections, access to online information resources, and instruction for individuals and groups. The Library holds special collections in the areas of Montana agriculture and ranching, Yellowstone National Park and its ecosystem, Montana history, and trout and salmonid fish.

First constructed in 1949, a large addition was built in 1961 to accommodate more than half a million volumes. The name honors MSU’s sixth president, Roland Renne, 1943-64.
