Library & Resources

The Bradburn Library is a major center of student activity on our campus. Students gather there before and after school, during breaks and lunch - to collaborate on projects, study, research and read. Classes meet in the library regularly to conduct research and utilize all of the resource material.

The Bradburn Library's collection includes approximately 10,000 books. All aspects of Bishop Blanchet's curriculum are enhanced by more than twenty databases, including those from Gale, ProQuest and EBSCO, which can be automatically accessed anywhere on campus without any passwords.

E-books are a growing resource in our collection, with new acquisitions made monthly. E-books can be accessed by many students simultaneously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

In the library, students have access to:
      • Online catalogs
      • E-books
      • Online databases
      • Internet searching
      • Reference resources
      • Using college-level resources
