Dear students,

There are many ways the library can help you prepare for the stress that accompanies the end of every semester. Whether you have a handful of final exams or one large research paper, we know that it can be a lot to handle. But Falvey Library can be an incredible source of academic help and support. The list of excellent and peer-reviewed primary and secondary scholarly sources accessible to all Villanova students grows everyday. Additionally, no matter what your major, there’s a librarian who specializes in instructing you on how to access articles, books, and information you need to succeed. Stop by and meet your subject librarian soon…you’ll be glad you did!

During December, we’re counting down to the holidays by featuring a new Falvey Library acquisition every day…sort of like those fun Advent calendars you enjoyed as a kid! Have fun discovering the latest choices here at your library!


Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers by Maxwell King; recommended by Social Sciences & Instructional Design Librarian, Deborah Bishov.
If remembered only for his advice to “look for the helpers” when viewing scary things on the news, the PBS television personality Fred Rogers would be worth memorializing. This new book delves into the life of the friendly and trustworthy companion to generations of children, who educated and entertained with puppetry, songs and sound advice. This book was written by a former Philadelphia Inquirer editor who knew Fred personally, and provides great background for the Netflix documentary and new movie starring Tom Hanks, according to Variety, due for release next year.
