Harvey A. Andruss Library (named for a former Bloomsburg University president) provides access to more than 450,000 volumes of books, bound periodicals, and government documents; 2 million microforms; 50,000 journals, magazines, and newspapers in both print and electronic format; and over 150 online databases.

The technologically designed building provides more than 900 individual study spaces with more than 260 computers. There are over 30 group study rooms and printing and photocopying rooms on all four floors, as well as a faculty and graduate student study on the fourth floor. The building also has exhibit spaces and a University Archives and Special Collections Reading Room. Wireless computer access is available in all areas of the building. The library is open to the general public.

Commonwealth University Library

The libraries of Bloomsburg, Lock Haven, and Mansfield have merged our searchable catalogs. This combined catalog includes thousands of links to e-resources and also includes bibliographic records of physical materials (printed books, etc.) that can be shipped quickly and easily from campus to campus. If you have any problems requesting items from another Commonwealth University library, ask a librarian to help you. And remember — if you can't find what you're looking for in the CUPa libraries catalog, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan.
