The study of bound heavy quark states has proven to be a crucial tool for investigating the matter formed in collisions of large nuclei. At both RHIC and the LHC, there has been considerable work in understanding the creation of these states in pp collisions, the effects of the nucleus in p+A collisions, and the spectral modifications that arise in A+A collisions. However, despite decades of experimental and theoretical work, precise quantification of the various effects that contribute to quarkonia suppression and enhancement remains elusive. This talk will give an overview of heavy quarkonium measurements from the RHIC and LHC detectors, with a focus on some recent measurements and their interpretations.
