About the Library

The Cardinal Stritch University Library is dedicated to bringing quality resources, instruction, and services to the students and faculty of Cardinal Stritch University.

The Library offers its resources in physical and electronic formats. Supplementing the large main collection of books and journals, are the Instructional Materials Collection, Cianciolo Research Collection, the Franciscan Collection, and the sheet music collection. Electronic resources, which may be accessed remotely, include databases and ebook collections. Additionally, members of the Stritch community have access to the collections of the SWITCH Library Consortium. Materials not found in these collections may be requested via the ILLiad interlibrary loan service.

The Library has flexible spaces for collaborative and individual study. Computer and wi-fi access is available throughout the facility.

Staff librarians guide students through the research process via reference and research consultation services as well as partner with faculty to deliver information literacy instruction.

Questions are always welcome. Feel free to contact us; we’re here to help!
