Mission and Vision


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.
