Welcome to Geisel Library at Saint Anselm College

Geisel Library welcomes guests to visit and utilize our on-site resources. While our first priority is to serve our students, many of the library's resources are available for use by the public. The library collection serves the broad curriculum demands of the college. Geisel Library is also a New Hampshire and Federal Government Depository Library.
