Accessing library materials

Standard library hours are Monday – Thursday, 9 AM to 4 PM. The library is also open on select Saturdays when classes are held on campus.

Note that hours may vary due to scheduled seminary activities. Please check our calendar before you arrive to verify that the library is open.

Online resources are always available to current students, faculty and staff through the Digital Theological Library (DTL). You can find these resources by searching the Missio catalog. When an item’s link takes you to the DTL, sign in using your Missio ID number as the password.

You can check out print books from Missio’s collection in 3 different ways:

• Come check them out at the library desk during our open hours.

• Reserve books and pick them up from our self-service area at your convenience. Make your request here.

• Have books mailed to your home. Make your request here.
