A Message from Kristine Brancolini, Dean of the Library
Welcome to the William H. Hannon Library! We have only been open for three years – since summer 2009 – and the popularity of our building, collections, and services continues to grow. The library supports the teaching, learning, and research needs of the students, faculty, and staff of Loyola Marymount University. Our new facility has helped us realize our vision for the library as a center of intellectual, cultural, and social life on campus. During the academic year, the library is open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. We are open until midnight on Friday and Saturday.Loyola Marymount University offers a dynamic academic environment and the William H. Hannon Library contributes to each student’s education, including developing his or her skills as a life-long learner. You will find the library to be an important destination for you – both physically and virtually. The William H. Hannon Library is located on the bluff, between the Leavey Residence Halls and the Jesuit Community. Please come inside and familiarize yourself with our outstanding services, collections, and spaces.The building provides wired and wireless network connections and plenty of electrical outlets. We also offer day lockers on Level 1, down the hall from the Circulation Desk.
All three floors provide a variety of seating options and work spaces, including 33 small group study rooms that may be reserved in advance online. Click here to see details about the rooms and our policies for using them. For example, you may reserve a group study room online for four hours per person, which means that a study group with three people could reserve one for 12 hours! Each group study room has a white board wallpaper called WallTalker,(tm) and a large flat screen panel on the wall where you can display a paper or a PowerPoint presentation from a laptop. If you would like to borrow a laptop - for in-library use only - please visit the Desk on Level 2.The description below is just a sampling of the richness you will find. Please explore the building at your leisure, returning often to research, read, review, reflect, or just relax.Level 1
