Mount Mary University is an urban Catholic university for women and graduate men sponsored by the School Sisters of Notre Dame that provides an environment for the development of the whole person. Located in Milwaukee, WI, for over 110 years, Mount Mary encourages leadership, integrity, and a deep sense of social justice arising from a sensitivity to moral values and Christian principles. Our university commits itself to excellence in teaching and learning with an emphasis on thinking critically. Mount Mary is recognized as a diverse learning community that works in partnership with local, national, and global organizations to educate women to transform the world.

Mount Mary University's digital collections are intended to serve students, faculty, staff, and researchers. Our goal is to provide patrons with a wide variety of artistic and historical content showcasing Mount Mary's rich history and vibrant present. Digital collections are created from historical material preserved in Mount Mary's archives and collaborative projects such as the Digital Fashion Archive.

Mount Mary’s archives are managed by the School Sisters of Notre Dame Archives of North America. Mount Mary's library staff oversees the digital collections.
