Library and Archives

About Us

The Libraries and Archives of St. Catherine University fosters exploration and engagement by providing opportunities -- independent and collaborative, curricular and co-curricular, formal and informal -- to discover, experiment, and create.

The Libraries and Archives collaborates in the University’s mission to develop ethical, reflective, and socially responsible leaders. We empower our community to be engaged scholars, professionals, and citizens through the cultivation of services, collections, spaces, and experiences. Building on traditional foundations of research and teaching, we facilitate innovative and emerging methods of inquiry, pedagogies, and technologies.

Want to have someone else pick up materials in the library on your behalf? You want to set up a proxy.

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.
