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.

September 2020 Update

Welcome back to Sacred Heart! Classes are starting this week. We are wearing masks, disinfecting, and distancing, but still glad to be “together” in spirit. We remain closed to the public but if you’d like to borrow or return materials, contact us (library@shsst.edu, 414-858-4995) and we’ll arrange a solution. —Jennie Bartholomew

The Library has gone into Overdrive!

This is certainly the time of year for changes – a couple of weeks ago we announced TLELP. Today, we’re announcing access to WISCAL, Wisconsin’s shared collection for academic libraries. Using the Overdrive software, you can check out a wide variety of e-books and read them on your computer, tablet or phone.

Use your SHSST email login to access thousands of e-books by going to this site. You must have Adobe Digital Editions installed on your device, or you can read it using your browser. For additional help, click here.

Sacred Heart Joins TLELP!

TLELP logo

The Leo Dehon Library has joined the Theological Libraries e-Book Lending Project, known as TLELP. TLELP is a group of independent libraries that save money by purchasing religious and theological eBooks direct from publishers, to then securely lend those resources, rather than the more usual leasing of content. In similar fashion to print book purchasing, TLELP libraries purchase specific eBooks for their own collections usually allowing one simultaneous user for each copy purchased. Currently, TLELP libraries have acquired nearly 900 unique titles, with many available as multiple copies for all patrons to borrow. Our publishers have agreed to allow TLELP libraries to share their collections with the other libraries in this consortium. We feel this is an excellent service to offer our students, particularly those participating in either the Cor Unum or Adveniat Regnum Tuum pathways for the MA program.

Sacred Heart students, faculty, and staff can access this great resource here; use you SH email login to gain full access. You can view a video introducing this resource here.
