Campus Libraries

Our libraries promote a community of intellectual curiosity, strive for excellence in education, and facilitate the pursuit of scholarship through collaboration with students, faculty and staff. Our librarians support students’ academic research and our resources provide a world of knowledge and diversity of viewpoints.

Arnold Bernhard Library

Quinnipiac University’s Arnold Bernhard Library

The 48,000-square-foot Arnold Bernhard Library on our Mount Carmel Campus features a sprawling, contemporary design. It's the place where both undergraduate and graduate students come to study, collaborate on group projects and conduct research.

Access the library’s array of electronic resources — including 153 databases and 117,000 journals — with your laptop or use one of our more than 60 public computers. When you need help, a knowledgeable librarian is available in person and through email and chat.

You will want to relax in one of our comfortable leather chairs and enjoy views of Sleeping Giant State Park and our scenic campus. And you can explore an assortment of art and literature related to Ireland’s Great Famine of the 19th century in the Lender Family Special Collection Room.
