The Lasallian Tradition

This guide provides useful resources to the faculty, staff and students researching the person and legacy of St. John Baptist de La Salle and the general history of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and Lasallian world.


If you need materials that Connelly Library doesn't have, there are two services that can help.

  • E-ZBorrow is a self-service option (for books only): you search for the item and we get it to you.
  • Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a full-service option: we search for the item and get it to you.

These services are provided at no cost to you.
