October Update

We remain closed to the public. If you are one of our community patrons, contact us if you’d like to borrow or return a book and we’ll arrange for a safe transfer of materials, 414-858-4995, library@shsst.edu. For our students and faculty we are acquiring new digital resources. Look for Oxford Reference Online Premium next week. Check out our other excellent Oxford digital resources. Thank you to our staff who regularly disinfect the library and all who wear their masks correctly, safely distance, and respect COVID-19 safety guidelines.

Late September Update

Classes are underway at Sacred Heart, though we remain closed to the public. We are offering our usual services: assisting with reference questions, research, technology, information literacy, and writing. If you are one of our community patrons, contact us if you’d like to borrow or return a book and we’ll arrange for a safe transfer of materials, 414-858-4995, library@shsst.edu.

We are pro-life in the library—thank you to all who are helping us to disinfect, safely distance, and respect COVID-19 safety guidelines.

Mission Statement

The primary mission of the Leo Dehon Library is to support the human, intellectual, pastoral, and spiritual needs of the students and faculty at Sacred Heart Seminary & School of Theology. In addition, we serve the Priests of the Sacred Heart, staff, alumni, patrons from the wider community, and the work of the Church.

We provide access to integrated digital and print resources in multiple formats, representing the wide range of perspectives available in our collection, the SWITCH consortium, and through cooperative borrowing agreements. We offer information literacy instruction, research assistance, technology coaching, and writing support for scholarship at all levels.
