When working remotely and logged on to the Global Protect Virtual Private Network (VPN), you may encounter an error message when trying to access library resources that require authentication (EZ Proxy prefix is in front of the resource URL). If you get a "Secure Connection Failed" error, log out of the VPN and re-authenticate in order to gain access to the resource. We are working with IT to correct this issue.
The Library supports the research needs for remote student learning and provides a number of services and resources. Please click for more resources.
During Xavier's remote learning environment, some of our vendors and other outside organizations are augmenting their services to our campus community. Click here for the details of those resources.
Effective March 21, access to the CLC is available Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm, for faculty and staff only with an ALL Card. The library building is closed. For up-to-date hours, please see here.
University Librarians are available remotely by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by chat between 9am-5pm Monday-Friday on the library's homepage. Each academic department has a library liaison who can help you with discipline specific research. Contact your personal librarian for help.
In support of the move to a remote learning environment for all Xavier students, the library building is closed and all staff are working remotely effective March 21. Borrowing of print materials and physical media is not available until further notice.
If you have library materials checked out now, University Library will renew them automatically for you. We will waive any fines that are accumulated as a result of being due or overdue during this time. (Replacement fees for lost materials will still apply.)
