ETextbook Reserves for Summer and Fall are now available via Morgan

Ebook editions of Course Textbooks aka ‘Booklist’ for Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 have now been acquired by the library, if an electronic version was available. They’ve been cataloged and are now accessible via the library catalog, Morgan. Please use this link to find your Course ETextbooks:

Just like we’ve done before, we will make a new video, and a pictorial guide for How To Access and Use ETextbook Reserves. We will also offer workshops and one on one instruction as needed. Stay tuned! Enjoy!

Please keep the people and front line workers of India and Pakistan in your prayers as they experience a resurgence of the global pandemic. Thanks.

April Rains Bring News: Read. Live. Now

May my teaching drop like the rain, my speech condense like the dew; like gentle rain on grass, like showers on new growth. Deuteronomy 32.2 (NRSV)

Dear LPTS Friends, 

In March 2021, on the one year anniversary of COVID19, we launched Read. Live. Now. A digital space with our writings about new books, updates to the research databases, and more. We celebrate life even as we mourn the lives lost. We bless the Ultimate, Divine Reality, Co-Creator of our days, who gifts us with life, love, hope, and joy. Read. Live. Now. we hope will inspire, and impart learning. May our writings be a blessing. Enjoy the 6 newsy posts from the Librarians just for you!


  1. Bibliotherapy: Poetry Therapy of Therapeutic Storytelling
  2. New Ebooks Added (Faculty Requests)
  3. ATLA Religion Database's Focus on Asia
  4. Open Access Additions to ATLA Religion Database
  5. Trauma, Teaching and Learning (American Academy of Religion Spotlight on Teaching)
  6. A Poem About A Tree (inspired by our campus)
