- Libraries & Spaces
We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.
The Lauinger Family Library Endowment Fund was established in 1996 by Philip C. Lauinger Jr. C'58, Frank T. Lauinger C'62, Anthony J. Lauinger C'67, Mary Lauinger Melvin, and Frances Lauinger Biolchini. The purpose of the fund is to foster Catholic values through the acquisition of current and retrospective books, journals, periodicals, audio-visuals, computer archives, and other library materials supportive of the teachings of Magisterium on the issues of abortion, contraception, infanticide, homosexuality, assisted suicide, euthanasia, reproductive technologies, and other similar issues related to marriage, family, human sexuality, human life, and bioethics.
