Saint Louis University's Special Collections -- Rare Books Division and Vatican Film Library -- is a laboratory for original research and learning based on primary sources. Our purpose is to collect, curate, and make accessible to students, faculty, and staff of Saint Louis University, as well as to visiting scholars and the local community, the rare book and medieval manuscript collections of the University Libraries.
