Library of The College of St. Scholastica: Home
Welcome to the CSS Library. Please contact us if you need assistance.
Hawk Ridge is always a hot spot this time of year to see raptors getting ready to caravan south with their friends, but the CSS campus has its visitors too, from our local raven to this merlin (a “small, fierce falcon”) photographed by Brad Snelling on Saturday last. Visit the Library’s Catalog of Birds to learn about the 120+ species of birds found over the years on Scholastica’s Duluth campus.
Culture Diversity, Language and Identity
As part of the School of Arts & Letters Colloquium, Brian Kingfisher explores how understanding culture, language, and diversity entails understanding our Selves (our identity). Kingfisher teaches Ojibwe Language and Culture not only for communicative purposes, but as a means of creating awareness of the Self. Sharing regional differences of the language allows students to make the language their own.

Dialoguing with Classics
As part of the School of Arts & Letters Colloquium, Dr. Kevin Vaughan will examine the role of “religious classics” in Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment, Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home. He will uncover the concept of a ‘classic’ used by Francis, and explore the implications for the Church’s dialogue on the environment.
