The Founders Library is the main component of a continually evolving University Library system. Its traditional resources of print materials are supplemented with a rich and expanding digital component. The HUL's website is a virtual library of local and global resources via the Internet, with thousands of full-text journals, bibliographic databases, reference tools, data files and multimedia. Sterrling, the online catalog, provides quick access to library holdings. The electronic infrastructure includes a state-of-the-art switches, fiber optics wiring, over 100 fully networked workstations, laser printers, and a Digital Learning Classroom.

In 1997, the Friends of the Libraries USA designated the Founders Library a 'Literary Landmark', in tribute to the life and writings of Sterling Brown (1901-1989). The ceremony, held in the Browsing Room, was attended by president H. Patrick Swygert and other University officials, as well as representative of FOLUSA and the Federation of Friends of the DC Public Library System.
