University of Portland Clark Library

Library Orientation

Welcome to the Clark Library

Xan Arch, Library DeanWelcome, we are so glad you have joined the UP community! Due to the University’s move to online instruction, the Clark Library experience will be different this fall. Our usual busy center for collaboration and study will be closed except for picking up books and media (see the Fall 2020 guide for more details). However, the library is much more than a place and we will continue to effectively support all students, regardless of major, year in school, or interests. The library offers you a vast array of information resources and tools, plus help with using them. Please be in touch if you have questions or feedback on our resources and services.

Xan Arch, Library Dean


The Clark Library librarians, staff members, and student employees are dedicated to student success. Their work enables you to make full use of library resources and services. You will have the most contact with those who work directly with the public, so we thought we would introduce some of them in the video below. Please use the staff directory to see a full list of library employees.
