Library Resources For Online Learners

This guide is designed to assist you in finding all the electronic resources available through the Morgan Library-Learning Center.  Some access only religious and theological resources and some are broader, but include many religious and theological books, journals or videos.  

How to access help

You will find phone numbers for each of the librarians on this page, but you can also use the Ask-A-Librarian form to ask for assistance.  This email account is monitored during business hours and might be a better option in case the librarian you email is unavailable the day you send your question.  In the Ask-A-Librarian form tell us where you have searched and what you need to find so that we can send you some suggestions for the best places to continue your research.

Borrowing Print Books Near You

Many college and university libraries will make provisions for local/guest users to borrow books, either for free or for a yearly fee.  They may own some of the books you would like to use.  Public libraries usually have an interlibrary loan system whereby they allow you to request a book you need.  They will get it from another library and they will notify you to come pick it up when it arrives.   Search the WorldCat database (search box below) to see if a library near you has the book you want.  The results page will show the nearest library owning that book.

The Morgan Library is part of reciprocal borrowing programs among seminaries and Christian college and university libraries.  These libraries have agreed to allow students from cooperating institutions to borrow books for free.  We participate in two different programs, ATLA (American Theological Library Association) and ACL (Association of Christian Librarians).  Procedures for each are slightly different.  Use the links below to locate a library near you.

Simply locate a participating library close to you and follow the rules of that library for using the library and checking out materials.  

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it would be wise to contact the library before visiting as their hours and services may be limited to their own students.
