Resources for Carleton & St. Olaf Students, Faculty & Staff

About Bridge

The Bridge Consortium provides unified discovery and delivery of library resources to the students, faculty, and staff of Carleton and St. Olaf colleges in Northfield, Minnesota. Catalyst is our discovery interface and provides access to the rich physical and electronic collections offered at each library.


Catalyst is our new library discovery interface, launched in Summer 2016. You’ll find lots of helpful information on our Introducing Catalyst blog.

Carleton and St. Olaf also subscribe to a variety of other databases to help you with your research projects.  You are welcome to visit the libraries at either school to use a database that your college does not provide access to.  Please contact us if you need further information.

Library Account

Materials in Catalyst can be requested using the “Request” link at the top of the list of items available. Please note that you need to sign in with your campus username/password to see this option.

If you can’t find the title you want in Catalyst, you should request it via Interlibrary Loan. We will try to find another library that can lend us the item.
