Visitors are welcome to use Logue Library any time we are open. All we ask of those not affiliated with the College is that you sign our guest book and leave a photo ID at the front desk while you are here.
Why Do I Have to Log In?
Please note that access to many of our resources are limited to the faculty, staff and currently enrolled students of Chestnut Hill College.
If clicking a link presents you with a box like the one above, enter your CHC email username & password OR your library barcode number in the appropriate boxes. Come to the library's circulation desk to receive a barcode sticker for the back of your student ID.
Questions & Answers
If you don't see your question here, chat with us or leave a message using the prompt at the bottom of the screen. We'll respond to your email and we may even add it to this list!
Comment: Your website confuses me. Just tell me how to find what I need for my paper!
Response: Click on the first tab of any of our pages and then scroll down and choose your topic from the list of academic subjects. If you don't find what you need there, contact a librarian for help.
Q: "I need to get this book is there any way you can get it from another library because it says that you do not have it here?"
A: Yes! You may request a book or journal article through Interlibrary Loan (ILL), a resource sharing service between libaries that provides a wide range of materials to the CHC community.
Q: "Do I need to bring books back to the library to renew them?"
A: No, you can call or email us, or contact us via the chat screens on our web pages. If there is a hold on the book, we will contact you to return it; otherwise we will reply with your new due date.
Q: "Do I need my student ID to take a book out? I lost my ID. Can I provide my student ID number or my name? Thank you!"
A: You do need an ID to check out library materials, including reserves. We put a barcode sticker on the back of the ID for this purpose. If you've lost an ID card that had a sticker on it, we can look you up in the system as long as you provide another photo ID. Eventually, you should replace your student ID and come in to have a preplacement sticker attached. If someone else begins using your lost ID in the library, you could be responsible for stolen material. Changing your barcode takes the old one out of the system. If you've never acquired a barcode sitcker, you will have to get a replacement ID card and then come in for the barcode.

Q: "I couldn't find where to reserve books. I see how to find books, but what about putting them on hold?"
A: If you see that a book is checked out, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (215) 248-7050 and we will place it on hold for you. At this time, WebCat, the library's catalog, does not allow you to place the hold directly.
Q: "I was curious about which member of the Logue family the library was named for ... a friend and graduate of the college just died and her aunt was at one time the president of the college ... back in the late forties perhaps??"
A: The Library is named for Sister Maria Kostka Logue, president of the College from 1924-1954. I believe this is one and the same person.
Q: "I just wanted to know if you have places for computers in the library." 3/19/2011
A: Study carrels are located throuhgout the building, with electrical access for laptops in the reference room and along the walls of the book stacks. (This question prompted the addition of this information on the Start tab of this page. Thanks!)
Q: "Is there a way to include the day's operating hours on Logue's or the school's home page? I wasn't certain where to go for opening and closing hours for the weekend."
A: Yes! We finally were able to include today's hours on our pages, with a link to a page to see more. Thanks for the nudge!
