During your time at LSTC you are strongly encouraged to avail yourself of the services and resources of the JKM Library. The library is physically located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the west wing of the LSTC main building, and virtually here.

The JKM Library is more than just a physical collection of shelves of thousands and thousands of books, periodicals, etc. Rather, it is a group of individuals committed to making those materials accessible, and helping students, faculty and staff to discover and interpret those resources according to their research needs.

The JKM Library staff seeks to meet the information needs of the LSTC community by:

  • providing virtual research assistance during scheduled hours of the week and weekend
  • enabling faculty and students to place retrieval requests for materials from the stacks and from the other 88 libraries in the I-Share consortium
  • enabling faculty and students to place document delivery requests for scanned materials from books and periodicals (within the constraints of copyright)
  • purchasing e-resources to support teaching and learning (within the constraints of budget and availability)
  • providing access to robust relevant online resources, including the Atla Religion Database with AtlaSerials PLUS, JSTOR collections, and ProQuest and EBSCO e-book collections.

Borrowers also have onsite access to the holdings of the libraries of the University of Chicago and the Association of Chicago Theological Schools (ACTS).

Questions regarding the JKM Library and its services should be directed to ask@jkmlibrary.org.
