Library Locations

St. Olaf College Libraries has two locations.

The main library is Rolvaag Memorial Library, which includes books, audiovisual materials, and study spaces. It is also home to the DiSCO, our digital scholarship space.

The second library is Halvorson Music Library, located on the first floor of Christiansen Hall of Music. Halvorson's collection includes books about music, musical scores, and AV materials. There are also study spaces, including a group study room that can be reserved here.

Requesting Materials from Campus Libraries

If it is more convenient, you can ask for materials from Halvorson be sent to Rolvaag (or vice versa) for you to pick up.  You can also request physical materials from Carleton College.

1. Find the item you want in Catalyst, the library catalog.

2. Make sure you are signed in. There should be a link in the item's catalog record.

3. Once you are signed in, you can ask for the whole item to be sent to you. Or, if you know you only need a single chapter, you can ask for a scan.

4. If you ask for the physical item, you can choose where you want to pick it up.

5. You will receive an email when the item is ready. If it is a scan, there will be a download link in the message. If you asked for the physical item, it will be waiting for you at the circulation desk of the library you indicated.
