The UNH Library includes the main Dimond Library, three branch libraries for physical sciences and engineering, and a library storage facility. Dimond Library houses collections in the social sciences, humanities, business, health and human services, education, earth sciences, and government documents (including maps). Dimond Library is also the home of the Dimond Academic Commons, the Douglas and Helena Milne Special Collections and Archives, and the University Museum.

The UNH Library has over 2.8 million print and electronic items, approximately 105,850 current print and electronic serial subscriptions, and over 100,000 media titles. Its holdings are supplemented by access to the collections of the Boston Library Consortium members as well as libraries across the country, through interlibrary loan. The UNH Library is also active in digitizing, preserving, and making accessible materials in its collections with over 22,400 objects in its digital collections. The institutional repository includes over 20,600 records. The UNH Library shares resources with the campus library at the University of New Hampshire at Manchester and collaborates with the UNH School of Law library.
