The Library also collaborates with and serves as a theological resource for Borromeo Seminary, the Permanent Diaconate program, the Pastoral Ministry program, the Continuing Education office, and, more generally, for patrons across Ohio.
The Bruening-Marotta Library holds more than 82,000 volumes and 900 units of audiovisual media, and subscribes to approximately 240 current periodicals. In addition, the Library is a member of OhioLINK, a consortium of 121 academic libraries in Ohio.
