College of St. Scholastica Library Access
Alums can use items in-house at the College Library and check out up to five St. Scholastica Library book items at a time with no annual fee. Please bring a photo ID to the Library to help with the check out process.
Alumni cannot continue to use our databases after graduation; our license agreements do not permit this kind of access. Minnesota residents can access some of the databases we use through the Electronic Library of Minnesota (http://www.elm4you.org/). Many other states have similar programs.
Language Learning Software
Mango is the fast, easy, and most effective way to learn to speak a foreign language - and it's available to alumni free-of-charge!
Mango is an online language learning system that teaches real conversation skills for practical communication. Through fun and engaging interactive lessons, Mango makes learning a new language fast, easy and incredibly effective. The system is completely web-based and remotely accessible, so you can learn anywhere you have an internet connection. As you listen to and repeat after native speakers, you'll learn more than just words and phrases. You’ll learn how those pieces can be rearranged and combined to make new thoughts, new conversations, and even more practical communication! In no time at all, you'll be able to navigate all sorts of everyday situations — get directions, order a meal, make new friends — the possibilities are endless!
Learn how alumni can access the Mango software on the library website.
