The Nicholas J. Schrup Library provides resources and services to support the curricular and personal information needs of the Clarke University community. The library’s role is first and foremost an educational one, teaching community members to find, evaluate, and use information efficiently and effectively, and to foster and encourage lifelong learning.

Clarke University has been blessed with a Heritage Edition of The Saint John’s Bible. The volumes are on display in the library. Stop by and see this one of a kind item.
