About Us

Together, the Post Learning Commons and Drexel Library make up the Post Academic Center. We are located between the Barbelin building and the Science Center, and support the academic programs of Saint Joseph’s University with books and periodicals in both print and electronic formats, research databases, audio-visual materials, and microforms. In addition, the Library provides circulating collections of popular reading and audiobooks. The Saint Joseph’s University Archives is housed in the Drexel Library.

The Library’s holdings are accessible through our Library catalog. Access to online databases is provided to support student and faculty research.
