The Internet is a great source of information, but it is by no means complete. The expression, "It's who you know" proves true every day at the Monsignor William Barry Memorial Library, where our team of experts can help guide you through nearly a million items, an also provide access to other library networks and online journals. Just ask for their help. Beyond reference material, the library also has audiovisual gear and study rooms for singles and groups.
Don't wait to ask; help is readily available. The professional staff and tutors at the Glenn Herbert Learning Center can provide one-on-one help in writing, math, and reading, or you can sign up for group workshops on test-taking, study skills, and time management.
If you're coping with a learning disability or attention deficit disorder, our Center for Advanced Learning (CAL) can help you adjust to university challenges, and equip you for success beyond graduation.
Nothing fulfills like helping the local community. Take note of Barry's efforts below. We invite you to join us. It does your soul some serious good, as well as the recipients of your efforts.
