Welcome! The faculty and staff of the Regis University Library are dedicated to the success of all students. We offer access to a broad range of materials and services that can be accessed remotely online via our website, and on-site at the Dayton Memorial Library on the Northwest Denver campus. We encourage new students to explore the library website and the services and resources listed on the site. Similarly, we encourage all students to establish a strong working relationship with the library early in their academic career.
The library provides the Regis community with significant resources for research, in print, online, and multimedia formats; a variety of areas for individual study and collaboration; and professional assistance for extensive research and document delivery.
The Regis Archives and Special Collections contain the inactive administrative archives of Regis University and Loretto Heights College. These records include unpublished materials documenting the Catholic presence in the Southwest during the nineteenth century. The Special Collections support the university curriculum with its collections of personal records, such as the Richard H. Truly U.S. Space Program Collection; its objects, such as the Notarianni Political Collection of U.S. presidential campaign items; and its rare books, such as medieval illuminated manuscripts. The Regis Santo Collection includes historical and contemporary Roman Catholic devotional objects from the American Southwest, Mexico and throughout Central America, and the Philippines. Many santos from this teaching collection are on display in the Thomas J. Steele, S.J. Santo Gallery in the Dayton Memorial Library. Significant portions of Special Collections and the Santo Collection are available online through the Regis University Digital Collections. The digital collections also contain a wide variety of open access, digital information including scholarly work by students and faculty of the university, as well as unique, digitized archival materials and institutional records from Archives and Special Collections.
