The CSB/SJU Libraries are a single library organization supporting the joint academic efforts of our two colleges.  We strive to create an inclusive environment that empowers collaboration, creativity, and scholarship while supporting student learning, faculty research, and the intellectual curiosity of our academic community.  At SJU, we recently finished a $25 million renovation and Learning Commons addition to the Alcuin Library; the facility houses the Saint John's Bible (http://www.saintjohnsbible.org/ ).  At CSB, a renovation of the Clemens Library is planned for 2019; we also support a departmental Music Library.  In collaboration with our IT Services department, the library partners with IT Services to provide instructional technology support for a wide variety of courses utilizing video, 3D printing, podcasting, and extended reality. 

The College of St. Benedict, a liberal arts college for women, and Saint John's University, a liberal arts college for men, are located four miles apart in Central Minnesota just outside St. Cloud and 70 miles from Minneapolis.  Both are Catholic colleges in the Benedictine tradition. The Benedictine value of hospitality creates a welcoming community for individuals of all faiths and perspectives.  Students and faculty from many diverse belief systems collectively bring a rich dimension to the academic, cultural and religious experience at CSB|SJU.  More information about the colleges is available at http://www.csbsju.edu/about.
