Other than “Where are the restrooms?” (through the lounge doors, to your left) and “When is Holy Grounds open?” (check the website), here are the questions most often asked by visiting alumni!
Am I able to look at past issues of The Villanovan?
Yes! The collected issues of the Villanovan and the Villanova Monthly are available here. Issues are fully searchable from the Library Catalog and are in PDF format for easy reading, printing and downloading.
Search the full text in the Digital Library search box or in the library Search tab. Selected content from 1995-current in the Lexis-Nexis database is available to the Villanova community members.
Falvey has an index, in Excel format, to assist in finding specific articles published in the Villanovan from 1992 through 2006.
Can I look at old Belle Air yearbooks?
Yes! These are not digitized, but the Library has paper format of the yearbooks available for browsing only during library hours.
Here is the current information on the title and holdings:
Title: Belle-air. Publisher: Villanova, Pa. : Villanova College, 1922- . Call Number: LD4834 .S75
Available Volume Holdings: 1922, 1924-1941, 1943-2004, 2006 to present. Ask at Circulation for the specific volume.
Yes! VU alumni are eligible for a free courtesy membership that allows borrowing privileges and on-site access to most of our online databases. To apply, simply come to the Falvey circulation desk with a photo ID. Check out the ‘Alumni — Courtesy Membership’ and ‘Courtesy Member Borrowing’ pages for more information.
Villanova Alumni and residents of Radnor or Lower Merion townships may apply annually for borrowing privileges and on site access to subscription databases. There is no fee for these privileges.
Heck yeah! We are on social media! Follow both the main library and the digital library on a wide selection of platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, GoodReads, Google+ and Pinterest! Or, get a great sampling of all of them on our Rebelmouse account.
Thanks to Sue Ottignon, the Good Places to Start librarian, for her help on this post!
