The Library

The Mount Aloysius College Library is located in a modern, 31,000 square-foot facility that was
opened in 1995. It is designed to serve the needs of students, faculty, and staff with the most up-
to-date print and electronic resources available. In addition to materials, the building is equipped
with spaces and technology resources to support the College’s educational, research, and
outreach missions. We have 3 group study rooms; 1 practice presentation room; 2 quiet study
rooms; the Buhl computer lab; a large classroom; a comfortable reading lounge; and computer
stations throughout the building.

The Library also houses the Learning Commons, a full-service academic support unit. The
Learning Commons provides professional and peer tutoring services; academic support
workshops; supplemental instruction sessions for certain courses; and peer-facilitated group
study sessions. Twice a semester the Learning Commons, in collaboration with the Student
Success and Advising Office, hosts All-College Study Nights. These events provide students
with tutoring services, faculty-led study sessions, food, and relaxation activities to help students
prepare for mid-term and final exams.

Library and Learning Commons staff members are known for their high-quality and customer-
friendly service. Here students and faculty find efficient retrieval, delivery, and circulation of
information resources. Other services include reference assistance, scheduled information
literacy instruction, copyright support, course reserves, printing facilities, and interlibrary loan.

The Library offers a rich and varied collection of print, electronic, and other non-print materials
that has been developed to support the curricula in all disciplines. In addition to a print collection
of 85,813 books, we hold 13,563 ebook titles, a small collection of print journals, DVD’s, audio
recordings, and laptop computers. We also provide access to 52 databases containing over
30,000 different journals and periodicals. One, ProQuest Central, contains 800 full-text
periodical titles including 600 scholarly journals. Mountlink, the Library’s online catalog
provides quick and concise information on publications and resources held in our collection.
Students and faculty can access these electronic resources from on and off-campus.
