The DigiPen Library (also called the Learning Resource Center) aims to support the institute’s curriculum, students, and faculty. Students have access to a variety of resources such as books, video games, e-books, DVDs, board games, sound effects, and reference books relevant to their programs of study. The library also subscribes to a selection of major journals and magazines related to the fields of gaming, simulation, computer engineering, and animation. Furthermore, the library allocates an annual budget for updating and expanding its resources.

The 1,164 square foot library currently holds more than 5,000 books, over 150,000 e-books, over 1,300 videos and video games, and subscriptions to 15 different magazines, with access to hundreds more available in the online databases. The library also loans out game controllers, consoles, and a large variety of other equipment used in the curriculum. The librarian provides reference services, information literacy instruction, and materials through inter-library loan. In addition to these curriculum-related resources, the library has a collection of career-oriented materials, including books on resumes, cover letters, and interviews. The library also hosts a free book and textbook exchange.
