Library Policies


Holy Spirit Library welcomes purchase requests for Library materials from Cabrini faculty, students, and staff. Requests are reviewed by Library Liaisons. Within budget constraints and adhering to our collection development policy, we make every attempt to acquire requested items. To suggest materials for purchase, please contact Anne Schwelm, Director, Holy Spirit Library, at aschwelm@cabrini.edu, or campus mail.


Holy Spirit Library is governed by Pennsylvania Act 1984-90, Section 428 Library Circulation Records, which states:

  • “Records related to the circulation of library materials which contain the names or other personally identifying details regarding the users of ... the library of any university, college, or educational institution chartered by the Commonwealth ... shall be confidential and shall not be made available to anyone except by a court order in a criminal proceeding.”


Holy Spirit Library adheres to the copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) which governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material.

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction.

One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be “used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.”

If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of “fair use,” that user may be liable for copyright infringement.
