||The Main Library of the University is in St. Augustine's Hall, located on the Queens Campus, which hosts a "Graduate Commons" specifically dedicated to our graduate population. Together with the collections of the Loretto Memorial Library on the Staten Island Campus, the Law School Library, the Oakdale Campus Library, and the Rome Campus Library, the total University Libraries collections number 1.7 million volumes and include more than 6,000 periodic subscriptions. These materials support course offerings as well as student cultural and recreational interests. Collections include government documents and audiovisual materials. There is also an extensive collection of indexes, abstracts, and full text databases.
The Financial Information Lab in Marillac Hall enhances the education we deliver through the establishment of a learning environment that brings real-time news, market information, financial data and industry-class analytical tools to our students and faculty.” This type of facility enables our students to learn about and live in the financial markets in business environments and situations throughout the world.
