Welcome to the Alfred Wilsey Library!
We empower learners. To this end, we teach research and informational literacy, guide access to ideas and resources, and encourage critical thinking. The library faculty and physical environment nurture reading for pleasure and purpose, as well as collaborative and individual study and practice. We respond to sociocultural needs, innovate in response to and ahead of our changing culture, and provide excellent service to the entire St. Ignatius community.
