Special Collections

Special Collections includes rare books, manuscripts, art and artists’ books, photographs, archival documents, multimedia resources, and other primary source material to support teaching, learning and research. Physical materials in Special Collections are housed in several locations, including Alcuin Library and the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library at Saint John’s University, and Clemens Library and the College Archives at the College of Saint Benedict. At the CSB/SJU Libraries, we seek to create a hospitable space for researchers of all kinds to discover items of cultural significance, and to support knowledge creation from our collections.
