Top 5 Things to Know about the Academy Library

  1. Borrow -- Your student ID card is your library card.  Show us your Lion card at the circulation desk to borrow books, movies, magazines, chargers, and more.  Use our online catalog Biblion to search for library materials.
  2. Research – Search our e-resources, e-book collections, and catalog at home or in your dorm room. Working on a research paper for class?  Start with the class research guides to find the best sources.
  3. Study -- The nine floors of the library provide a variety of study spaces.  Tables for group study are available on most floors. Carrels for quiet study are located on floors 2--3M.  Comfy chairs and couches in the Library Commons and 3rd floor lounge provide a more casual place to read and study.
  4. Print & Copy – Computers as well as all-in-one printer, copier, scanning machines are available for use on the ground and main floors and in the computer lab on 1M.  Wireless is available throughout the building.  Go to to print documents from your own device.
  5. Help – Need research help?  The librarians at the main floor Help Desk can help you find materials in the library, search our online databases and resources, cite sources, and more.   You can text, email, call, or chat with us or visit us in person.
