Older issues:


Compass: New Directions at Falvey, a web-based newsletter distributed via e-mail, was published during the academic year for faculty, administration and staff on the University campus and for alumni, colleagues in the academic community and off-campus readers with a vital interest in Falvey Memorial Library and Villanova University.

Standard columns, such as “Director’s Watch,” featuring commentary from the University librarian, and “Blue Electrode,” highlighting digital library news, were complemented by articles about new resources, events, people news and special topics. The articles can now be found published on the Falvey news blog.

Blueprints (University and department news), articles of interest to University faculty and staff, is archived on the University Communication pages.
