Library Orientation for Students


Welcome to Mount St. Mary’s University and the Hugh J. Phillips Library.

We are here to help you succeed. Our resources and services are focused on your information needs. The library's hours are scheduled for your convenience.  Even when you cannot come to the Library, our faculty and staff want you to know how to access our resources.

It’s easy to discover what the library has for you.  

Don't hesitate to ask for help either through email, the chat service or by dropping by our librarians' office on the Main Floor of the Library!
