The purpose of this guide is to provide Grace Online students with the tools needed to complete assignments you have. We'll provide some tutorials and list all the online resources, plus give you instructions for using library resources on your mobile devices.
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.
When you click on a link to a database to which we subscribe, you will be prompted to log in with your campus/email login. (see image below) Once you are logged in, you should have access to all the other library databases until you close that browser, then you will have to log in again.
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 is slightly different. Use the links below to locate a library near you.
