At Holy Family University, we believe in providing the best resources for students and helping them learn to use them effectively. In addition, we offer materials for entertainment purposes and recreational reading. Holy Family has two libraries to serve you, the main library at the Philadelphia campus and a branch library (the Learning Resource Center) at the Newtown location.

We're here to help you find what you need.

Need books, ebooks, children's books, DVDs or teaching resources? Search the online library catalog for material at both campus libraries.

Need articles from academic, professional, or general interest journals and perodicals? Our research databases make these available on- or off-campus.

Need a particular journal, magazine, or newspaper? Our online and print collections date back to the 1800s.

Need information resources for your major or class? Use the librarian-created LibGuides.

Need help with citations or with formatting your paper? Citation and style guides are available.
