Dinand Library

As part of a post-World War I campus expansion, Dinand Library was originally designed by the Boston architectural firm of Maginnis & Walsh to be a defined space for study on the campus. Named in honor of Bishop Joseph N. Dinand, S.J. who served as President of Holy Cross from 1911-1918 and from 1924-1927, the library was dedicated in 1927 and renovated in 1979 when the Hiatt wings were added. Dinand is a commanding building whose architectural presence, historical significance, and geographical location is at the center of the campus.

Our collection includes print books and journals, DVDs, and microform, as well as countless e-resources, both individual electronic journals and aggregate databases. Our services include personal research sessions, technology courses, circulation, and reserves.
