Student Manual Statement

Saint Francis University Library provides online access to information in a rich array of resources supporting your academic research, including thousands of e-journals and over seventy article databases. You can access the content of these information resources off campus by logging in with your University login and password and you can request articles not available at our library through Interlibrary Loan  (follow the link First Time Users to create your account).

For assistance with research and using library resources, librarians are here to help! Each one is assigned to several departments on campus; send “your librarian” an email so that a mutually agreeable time can be arranged to discuss your needs.  Also, the librarians have created guides to research, called Research Guides. You may find the answer to your questions there or feel free to contact the Research Help Desk 45 hours per week during the fall and spring semesters.

General library questions or account information can be discussed with the Circulation Desk at 1-(814) 472-3160.  When you phone us, let us know you are calling long distance, and we will be glad to get your number and call you back.
