About the Library

Bishop Library serves as the academic center of the College, providing access to physical, electronic, and digital collections, library services, and expertise, plus collaborative and quiet study spaces. Bishop Library fosters peer learning, social interaction, and academic inquiry. The Library’s physical collections total more than 192,000 items and are supplemented by hundreds of online databases and a discovery service (online catalog and more) to access books, eBooks and eAudio, full-text articles, images, streaming media, and more. Faculty, students, and staff can request additional resources from other libraries through our Interlibrary Loan service. Bishop Library features tech-enabled classrooms, conference, and study rooms as well as the Bishop Brews coffee shop.
