About the De Paul Library

USM's De Paul Library is home to thousands of resources to help all of our students excel, study or research. It's also a perfect place to study.

De Paul Library houses several special collections, including the Bernard H. Hall Abraham Lincoln Collection and the John and Mary Craig Scripture Collection. Tours of Special Collections must be scheduled in advance by calling 913-758-6306.

Community Description

The De Paul Library meets the needs for study and research of USM students, faculty, staff and administration. Library resources are also available to the surrounding local community. In addition, other libraries may request to use materials through interlibrary loan (ILL). The De Paul Library will use ILL as well to access materials from other libraries for its patrons.
