Access to Archbishop Ireland Memorial Library

Alumni of The Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity and the University of St. Thomas now have free online access to the American Theological Library Associations' Catholic Periodical Literature Index for Alumn (ATLA CPLI) through the Archbishop Ireland Memorial Library.  ATLA is a nationally known religious studies database that includes over 380,000 index citations of articles and reviews published in Roman Catholic periodicals and books, Papal documents, and Church promulgations. Originally developed by the Catholic Library Association, CPLI covers content from over 200 periodicals dating back to 1981.

Ireland Library also offers an alumni subscription to ATLASerials for Alum (ATLAS), an online collection of theological journals selected by leading theologians and scholars. Both ATLA and ATLAS offer 24-hour online access to alumni from The Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity and the University of St. Thomas.

Seminary Class Photographs

One of the tasks of the Centennial was to complete the collection of historical photographs in The Saint Paul Seminary archives. When the Centennial began, we had copies of 28 ordination classes. During the Centennial year we acquired 30 additional photographs from alumni and friends. We still need copies of the class pictures for the years listed below. If you have a photograph of any one of these classes, please  contact the Office of Institutional Advancement, 2260 Summit Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55105; (651) 962-5054. We will make a copy of the photograph and return it to you.
