Welcome to the Gonzaga Library: Check Us Out!

The Foley Center Library Building

The library has a ton of ways to make your student experience easier!

Here are a few things you should know:

Library card and the text: Your Zagcard is your library card!

Coffee cup and granola bar, and the text "Pack a snack!"

Food and beverages are allowed in the Foley Library, but please use closed-lid containers, and no hot, smelly or messy foods.

(It can be hard to study with eau-de-pizza wafting around.)

Some of the library's study spaces

We have plenty of space to study! Snag a table for group work (and grab a rolling whiteboard) or hunker down for some silent study in a kiosk or comfy '90s chair. Feel free to use the classrooms if they're not in use. The glass classroom has tables with power outlets, and the computer lab has, well, computers! 

JavaScript disabled or chat unavailable.

Printer with starburst graphic and the words "24 Hour Printing"

Print from the library computers or your personal laptop using Bulldog Bucks! Or scan for free! We have four multi-function printers in the library for your color or black and white printing needs.

The first time you print, you'll be asked to log in at a printer and scan your Zagcard at the sensor to link it to your account. Every time you print after that, you can just scan your card to log in and release the print job in moments!

Our atrium printer is available 24 hours with your Zagcard. To print from your laptop, or to send a job after hours, just upload your files at guprint.gonzaga.edu.

Find your study zone! Whether you want to work with a group or focus in solitary silence, Foley has a spot for you! Green is group study zone: moderate conversation level. It is found on the main level in the study rooms. Yellow is quiet study. Occasional quiet conversation is permitted. It is found on the stairwell, on the second level, and in parts of the lower level. Red is silent study. Individual silent study only is appropriate. It is found on the third floor. Blue is the phone zone, where cell phone use is permitted. It is found in the atrium.

The librarians are your friends! (Seriously, we really are friendly.) Save yourself some frustration and talk to a librarian if you run into any research trouble, or even just for help getting started. Swing by the information desk, open a chat, or make an appointment. We don't bite!
