The College of Saint Mary Library provides instruction, research assistance, a collection of print and electronic resources, and experienced staff to assist members of the CSM community in their study, research, and teaching. Conveniently located in the Hixson-Lied Commons, the Library space is open 24/7, with adjusted service hours during midterm and final exams and holiday breaks.
The Library offers four study rooms for group or private study. Resources include scanners, a copier, a printer, and sixteen computer workstations loaded with the Microsoft Office Suite. Wireless internet access is available throughout the building. Laptop computers, digital video cameras, voice recorders, and other types of electronic equipment are available for checkout.
The collection includes a variety of print and electronic resources: books, journals, and databases covering all subjects taught at CSM. Databases and electronic journals are accessible to members of the CSM community both on and off campus. The Library shares its online catalog with other colleges and universities in eastern Nebraska. CSM students and faculty may borrow materials from these libraries on presentation of a CSM ID card.
Librarians are available to provide specialized research assistance and instruction for individuals and classes. Questions can be submitted in person, by e-mail, telephone, and via the Ask a Librarian link on the Library web page. Interlibrary loan services are available to all registered users at no extra charge.
