Campus is a bit quieter during the summer months, but that doesn't stop us from continuing the fun at the Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons. You can still come by the IT help desk, the Writing Center, Learning Assistance Programs, Research Services, the Billodue Makerspace, the Media Production Center, and access our full catalog of materials––including some awesome selections for our 3rd-floor displays. Don't be shy, come on by!
