Library Services to the Online Learning Community


It is the goal of Holy Apostles College and Seminary Library to support the educational and research needs of  all its students and faculty regardless of their physical location. The Library staff is committed to providing reference assistance and fulfilling requests for research materials.  We also provide location information to our Online Learning community so students and faculty can obtain materials through their local public libraries. The following policies and procedures apply to all students and faculty for the duration of the academic semester(s) in which they are enrolled or teaching.

  • All Online Learning students and faculty are eligible to use any electronic databases available through the Holy Apostles College and Seminary Library.
  • Remote access is available to any Online Learning student enrolled in at least one course and Online Learning faculty teaching at least one course, in the current academic semester.
  • Remote access to electronic databases will be provided to Online Learning students and faculty through the use of an universal barcode.  A library barcode document is located in the "Shared Folder" of the "Files" tab in Populi. Barcodes assigned will be activated for the duration of the current semester only.
  • Barcodes assigned to all Online Learning students and faculty are restricted to their personal, educational use and are not to be distributed to other parties. 
  • Online Learning students who are granted an incomplete for their present semester may request an extension of their Library services for a period of six weeks.  This request should be emailed to the Director of Library Services at
  • Online Learning students and faculty (in the Continental U.S.) may request to borrow up to two (2) books at a time from the HACS Library collection. A shipping/handling fee will apply. The Library Director has discretion as to the eligibility of materials for loan.  Please review the Intra-Library Loan Fee Structure and the Overdue Library Materials Policy  prior to requesting books.
  • Online Learning students and faculty may request photocopies of documents and articles from the HACS Library periodical collection within the limits of copyright compliance.  A processing/shipping/copyright fee (if applicable) will apply.
