Whenever the Franklin University Nationwide Library is open, a librarian is available to help you with your research questions. While the library is open every day of the week, you’ll want to check our website for the specific hours of operation which vary.
During the school trimesters, the library is open:
|Monday — Thursday||8am - 10pm|
|Friday||8am - 5pm|
|Saturday||8am - 4pm|
The free Franklin University app allows users to take a mobile tour of their campus, whether from the comfort of their home or while on campus. With this app, visitors can virtually tour Main Campus, contact the institution, and discover engaging facts on the history, mission, and direction of the institution.
The library offers a surprising amount of resources over a broad range of subject areas. We’ve designed our site to make it more likely that you’ll be able to find exactly what you’re looking for. We’ve dropped a lot of the librarian jargon in favor of clearer language and removed as many obstacles as possible to help make your research more efficient and productive.
