Given the updated recommendations of global health agencies and the actions of local government officials, we have chosen to close the physical Connelly Library until further notice. In accordance with the policies of the University, we are choosing the path that prioritizes the safety and wellness of the La Salle community and our many campus guests.
Use of the Connelly Library is primarily to meet the research and information needs of the students, faculty and staff of the University. They will have priority in the use of all services, resources, and facilities. The library's unique collections and resources are also open to visiting scholars or researchers not directly affiliated with the University.
Students, Faculty, and Staff
Your La Salle University ID card must be presented to the security officer assigned to the lobby desk for inspection prior to entering the library.
To access the library, an area resident must provide photo ID to the security officer at the desk.
Only those residents that reside in zip codes 19138, 19141, and 19144 are eligible to register for Connelly Library usage privileges. Guests must adhere to the following guidelines:
High School Students
Juniors, seniors, and faculty from Central High School, La Salle College High School, and Philadelphia High School for Girls are eligible to use the Library.
PALCI On-site Borrowers
La Salle participates in PALCI’s Reciprocal On-Site Borrowing Program. Students, faculty, and staff from PALCI institutions are eligible to use the Library and to borrow materials from the circulating collection. PDFs of the Program Procedures and Authorization Form are linked below.
Visiting Researchers and Other Guests
