Check out Phillips Library! It's more than a place for books. The Library is the academic nexus of the campus, where services and resources that promote intellectual life at the Mount come together.

Phillips Library is a vibrant learning center where students may read, write, watch, listen, meet, research, learn, and build community.

The Library is the place where expertise and resources come together. It's a primary learning space in the Mount's intellectual network, staffed by research/resource savvy professionals. If you can't find what you need in Phillips Library, we'll track it down through ILLiad, our new InterLibrary Loan service, WorldCat, other international sources, and sometimes through library miracles. The Library provides a supportive environment for the development of information literacy, information technology, teaching and learning skills among faculty and students.

The Library fulfills an essential role in the academic life of the university by collecting and organizing a knowledge base of information resources that is continually evaluated and augmented to ensure its relevance to the curriculum.
