Digital Collections

With the intention of actively developing and supporting a diverse collection of resources in all appropriate formats, Mother Theresa Hackelmeier Memorial Library is excited to contribute to the ongoing preservation and display of various collections of the Marian University community. Events and items pertaining to the history, curriculum, and atmosphere of Marian University are digitized by the library staff and are available for viewing through our online collections powered by CONTENT dm software.

In addition, many of the special events happening in the library and on campus, such as lectures, performances, etc. are either filmed or recorded by the library staff and placed in the library reserves collection. To view or hear a copy of these recorded events, stop by the circulation desk and inquire about your selection.
