Bellarmine Library Resources

All library resources, including books, e-books and databases, are accessed through Canvas, under the Library Resources course.  

Library Policies

The Library is an academic building and all school policies outlined in the Student Handbook are enforced in the Library. The environment in the Library is conducive to quiet independent study and group work kept at a low noise level.


Students may borrow five items at a time. Regular items may be checked out for 10 school days, while reference and reserve items may be checked out overnight. We have at least one copy of most textbooks which are available to use only in the Library.

Overdue fines accrue at the rate of $0.25 per day for regular materials, $0.50 per day for reference and reserve materials.

Food and Drink:

Water is the only drink allowed in the Library. Eating food or drinking any beverage other than water will result in a JUG.

Electronic Devices:

All school policies in regard to computer, tablet and cell phone usage will be enforced in the Library.

We ask that cell phones be set to silent or vibrate only, and that you take your phone conversations outside of the Library.
