The quality of any educational institution is determined largely by the proficiency of its faculty and the excellence of the information resources available to support the curriculum. The Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library is housed in a beautiful and inviting modern facility. The building has ample study facilities, a computer laboratory, a curriculum materials center, group work rooms, and audio-visual areas. Canisius students have at their disposal an excellent library collection of over 400,000 volumes of books, periodicals, microforms, and other materials. The Library subscribes to over 24,000 full text electronic periocicals as well as to hundreds of paper journal subscritiption. Electronic resources can also be accessed from computer labs and residence halls through the campus network and from off-campus via the World Wide Web. The catalog and various other operations are fully automated. The Library has a substantial complement of computer equipment to access these resources, including over 50 laptop computers with wireless network access that may be used by students within the building. Canisius students have convenient and rapid access to 5.8 million volumes in the Connect NY Consortium. Further, the Library’s participation in OCLC (On-line Computer Library Center), an international library consortium, enables it to borrow materials from libraries throughout the United States via direct computer link. The Library is open every day of the week for study and research, and is open nights until midnight from Sunday through Thursday. Assistance and guidance in the use of the Library and its facilities are provided by a highly competent staff of professional librarians and technical assistants. The Rev. J. Clayton Murray, S.J.
