The Aquinas College Library offers over 200,000 resources selected to support the College’s curriculum. In addition to books and periodicals, the library provides 160 databases from information vendors such as OCLC, ProQuest, EBSCO, Gale, JSTOR, and others. These online databases provide access to more than 18,000 full-text periodicals and over 30,000 open access journals. As a member of the OCLC network, the Aquinas College Library has access to the world’s largest bibliographic database with over 16,000 member libraries and more than two billion holdings. The Aquinas on-line public access catalog is powered by OCLC’s WorldCat Discovery, rendering a seamless process of book and article search and InterLibrary Loan requests. Through this interface, patrons simultaneously search Aquinas’s print book holdings, databases holdings, eBook holdings, and WorldCat libraries. Any items not held by Aquinas may be requested from other libraries through WorldCat Discovery’s InterLibrary Loan request feature. The Library is designed for both individual and group study with carrels, work tables, study rooms, computers, and comfortable seating. Wi-Fi access is provided throughout the library, equipment for viewing and listening to audiovisual materials are available, as are photocopy services. The Library’s special collections include the Monsignor Flanigen Archive, the Denman Collection of Bosley Genealogy by Judith Hoffman and Janice Reynolds, Sister Aloysius Mackin Papers, and rare books.
