Scholars in Lasallian studies - or potential scholars - tend to be interested in the programs or resources that will allow research on a certain topic related to Lasallian history, pedagogy, or spirituality. They will already be aware of the resources described within the other audience categories and are interested in diving a little deeper.
There are scholarly resources available on the Institute website and on other District websites. The first step to building one's interest in this area is to spend time exploring the various locations where Lasallian resources have been made available and accessible. Note that on the RESOURCES page, on the bottom of the list of search options is a Google "Custom Search" bar, which searches for items or key words only on Lasallian related websites - national, international, colleges and universities, etc. It is a good place to start searching for esoteric Lasallian sorts of things.
