The libraries of Loyola Marymount University are overflowing with intellectual resources — physical collections, digital databases and staff expertise — to assist LMU students and faculty in reaching their fullest academic potential.
William H. Hannon Library
Completed in 2009, the gorgeous William H. Hannon Library is a fully equipped campus resource for in-depth research, quiet study or creative collaboration. Open 24 hours from Sunday morning to Friday night, the library holds a massive collection of 500,000 books, 100,000 bound periodicals and extensive electronic databases. Enjoy the library’s panoramic views of the Pacific coast, reserve a group study room, check out laptops and digital cameras, or take a well-deserved study break at the library's cafe.
William M. Rains Library
The Rains Library, spread across two Frank Gehry-designed buildings on the downtown L.A. campus of Loyola Law School, is one of the largest private law libraries in the western United States. An expert staff of 30 law librarians assists students and faculty in researching the library’s extensive collection of more than a half million volumes and dozens of electronic databases covering California, U.S. and international law.
