The Eugene H. Maly Memorial Library
The Eugene H. Maly Memorial Library supports the curriculum and goals of Mount St. Mary's Seminary and Athenaeum programs of study. The libraryâ€™s collection emphasizes the fields of biblical studies, theology, philosophy, liturgy, church history and pastoral counseling. It also is strong in the areas of canon law, bioethics, and classical and current spirituality. Although its primary emphasis is the Roman Catholic tradition, it provides resources that promote the understanding of other religious and cultural traditions. In addition to the reference and circulation collections, Maly Library offers a Special Collection of rare books that includes several dozen manuscripts and incunabula.
The library had its beginnings in 1833, four years after Bishop Edward D. Fenwick founded St. Francis Xavier Seminary and the Athenaeum College. It is the library of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and extends library privileges to all those residing in the Archdiocese and Greater Cincinnati area as well as those in the OPAL and OhioLINK consortia.
