Research Guide of the Week!
In keeping with Lasallian Heritage month, did you know there is a research guide that is dedicated to the Lasallian Collection that the library has to offer?
The Lasallian Collection at Lewis University contains information about the history of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, from its beginnings in the 17th century to the present day.
The Lasallian Collection at Lewis University is located on the main 1st floor of the library on the east wall near the large glass window.
Various types of materials in this collection include biographies of St. John Baptist de la Salle, select biographies of brothers from the time of the Founder in 17th Century France to the current day, Institute documents, books and articles and pamphlets written by brothers, materials on Lasallian pedagogy, publications from various USA provinces, financial and statistical reports, books on Lasallian spirituality and prayer, and several videos on Lasallian themes.
Items within the Lasallian Collection are non-circulating. However, with the assistance of library staff, certain items may be photocopied or scanned.
Items on Lasallian themes within the regular Lewis Library collection may be checked out in the usual way.
Brother David Kuebler, our very own reference librarian, is the key person to ask if you have any questions pertaining to the Christian Brothers or Lasallian Heritage. And as always, if you need any support in your research assignment, feel free to make an appointment or reach out via chat (under Contact Us).
