Frank S. DiPietro Library
The DiPietro Library is located on the Rindge Campus. In support of its educational mission, the Library provides a comfortable open-stack environment for study and research. Open 92 hours a week during the academic year, the Library offers a variety of services, including individual and group study rooms, printing and scanning, reference consultations, and research guidance.
To develop our students’ ability to find, evaluate, and use appropriate information sources, librarians offer instruction based on nationally recognized principles of information literacy. These services are presented on site, in the classroom, and remotely via electronic recordings. Our collection of over 350,000 volumes includes books and ebooks, periodicals, DVDs, streamed videos, and other multimedia. More than seventy electronic periodical databases provide full-text access to over 75,000 electronic journal titles. Our online catalog and other resources and services are available on the library’s website.
All Franklin Pierce students, regardless of campus location, may borrow materials from the Library. You may also request items not owned by Franklin Pierce via interlibrary loan (ILL). Whenever possible, ILL items will be sent to you electronically.
The University is a member of the New Hampshire College and University Council (NHCUC), which extends borrowing privileges to Franklin Pierce students at other member institutions. This privilege is generally limited to the use of materials on site, and the loan of materials from the library’s circulating collections.
