About the Library

The Eugene S. Farley Library provides the collections and services to support and strengthen the teaching, learning, mentoring and research mission of Wilkes University.

Our vision is to offer a friendly, comfortable, information rich, high tech/multimedia and service-oriented environment that cultivates a lifelong commitment to learning, ethics, civic responsibility and openness to cultural diversity.

Library resources available to Wilkes University students include:

  • ProQuest Central research databases in health sciences, nursing, business and more.
  • Summon, a discovery service that simultaneously searches all available library resources, databases and journals.
  • Smart classrooms.
  • University Archives.
  • Four special collections rooms.

Donations made to the Eugene S. Farley Library and University Archives allows us to continue to explore interactive ways to engage our campus and academic community with our rich institutional history.

Your donation will be used to help us preserve and provide future Wilkes generations with access to Wilkes history. Thank you for making a difference!
