The Walter J. Mahoney Library is one of our main research collaboration hubs.

Stepinac emphasizes the development of students’ skills in research, analysis, evidence-based arguments, collaboration, writing, and presenting. We have numerous research databases available: EBSCO, ProQuest, Encyclopedia Britannica, and OpenEd.

The library also includes nearly 7,000 cataloged items including books, magazines, videos, books-on-tape, and a professional collection. There are over 25 current magazine and newspaper subscriptions. Back-issues of over 1,000 different magazines and newspapers are available electronically.  There is also an archive of school yearbooks and recorded theatrical performances.
