Welcome to the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University Libraries, Media and Archives. The CSB/SJU Libraries serve the combined student body with a joint staff and coordinated programs and services. We are pleased to be active partners in teaching, learning and scholarship for our students, faculty, and visitors. The CSB/SJU Libraries support the development of critical thinking, personal inquiry, creative expression, and lifelong learning. Our excellent services include rich collections, expert assistance and effective learning spaces at both Clemens Library (CSB) and Alcuin Library (SJU).
We partner with the CSB/SJU academic community and other libraries to support the curriculum and further the institutional missions. Through our facilities and services we enhance learning, teaching, scholarship, and creativity within our Benedictine communities.
The Library, Media and Archives are a seedbed of self-directed learning at CSB/SJU. Through our programs, our students, faculty, and visitors generate new knowledge, develop creative expression, engage in thoughtful conversation, and draw upon the record of human experience.
