CUA Libraries has e-books available online to our users. Most of them allow you to print and even download. Our librarian, Kristen Fredericksen, has created a guide to show you how to do this on different e-book platforms.
Effective Tuesday, January 17, 2012, certain areas of the Mullen Library will be open for student use 24 hours a day Monday through Thursday (excepting spring break and the Easter holidays). This means that when the Library opens for service at 8 am on a Monday, it will not close its doors until Friday evening at 10 pm. You will have to show your CUA Cardinal Card to enter the building between 11pm and 8am.
The CUA University Libraries are happy to welcome Howard University into the WRLC partnership.
Beginning January 9, CUA students, faculty and staff will be able to directly borrow from the Howard University Libraries. You may already notice that their records now appear in our basic shared catalog. Efforts are continuing to fully integrate their holdings into our more advanced discovery tools.
The librarians and library staff at CUA are looking forward to the new level of cooperation with our colleagues at Howard as we all strive to provide better services and access to research materials.
For more information, please see the official press release at the Howard University News Room.
The University Libraries and Archives will close from Dec. 23rd to Jan. 2nd for the Winter Break. Mullen Library will be open on Tuesday, Jan. 3rd from 9am to 5pm.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
In an effort to ensure the safety of our students, faculty, staff and collections, the library is now scanning Cardinal Cards at the entrance of Mullen library. The new procedure is in place to ensure patrons admitted are legitimate. Non-CUA visitors are welcome with proper photo identification and registration at the guard desk. The library appreciates your patience and support as we implement this new procedure.
Due to the expected weather, Mullen Library will be closing at 1pm, today, August 27. We will assess the situation in the morning to determine whether or not we will open Sunday.
