*Distance students- guide to the library*

Are you an online, low-res, or commuter student? This guide will help you use library resources...wherever you are!

Away from the bay area?

If you are near a seminary or theological library in the US or Canada, please check with us. We are part of a program (ATLA Reciprocal Borrowing Program) that allows GTU students & faculty to use materials at other ATLA member-participating libraries. We can tell you more about this program, but you can zoom in to see libraries near you. Generally, the other library will want proof of your being a GTU current student, but if they would like confirmation of your current enrollment from a library just let us know. 

If you are located in an area without any ATLA libraries, please tell us the name of the city (contact us at library@gtu.edu or via the chat box). We can contact local theology libraries and see if they want to join- sometimes they just don't know about this program and are happy to share! If you aren't near a theology library, we can try and work something out with whatever libraries are in your area, just let us know.
