Collection Development Policies

Want the library to order a book? Don't like what you see?

The Friends of St. Catherine University Libraries was established in 1996 to provide funds for the purchase of materials to enrich the collections of the Library and to provide materials we could not afford were it not for the Friends. Through membership contributions and additional donations, Friends provide thousands of dollars annually for purchase of new books and help support the four library endowment funds.

At St. Catherine University Libraries we know that we have friends all over the Twin Cities and across the United States. We appreciate your continuing support. For more information, contact Emily Asch, Director of Libraries.
