The Marian Library/International Marian Research Institute
The Marian Library was founded in 1943, and is home to an extensive collection of books, periodicals, artwork, manuscripts, films, and ephemera related to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Marian Library is located within Roesch Library at the University of Dayton, and is home to the International Marian Research Institute, a Pontifical Institute dedicated to Mariology, or the study of Mary.
The International Marian Research Institute (IMRI) was founded in 1975 in affiliation with Marianum, a pontifical institute in Rome, allowing students to study in America instead of having to travel to Rome to complete their studies. IMRI's programs include a doctorate in sacred theology (S.T.D.) and licentiate in sacred theology (S.T.L.); students can also earn credits towards a master's degree through the Department of Religious Studies of the University of Dayton.
