About

The E.M. White Library seeks to support the mission of Louisville Seminary by providing its students, faculty, and other employees with (1) integrated access to library resources and information technologies that facilitate their activities of teaching, learning, research, and administration and (2) instruction that enhances their ability to find, evaluate, and use information relevant to their vocational commitments with effectiveness and integrity. Within the scope of this support for the mission of Louisville Seminary, the department also seeks to offer resources and instruction to Seminary alums, members of area faith communities, and the local public in support of their study of subjects related to Christian faith and practice.

This portal was originally created to help our community's learning needs during Spring 2020. Our patrons love our beautiful and serene library but unfortunately during COVID-19 / #HealthyAtHome, which began on March 15th for us, the library's physical spaces and owned collections of 195,000 resources approximately are unavailable.  However, the Library provides remote access to the LPTS community to 12,284 + 250,000 + subscription ebooks, 45 electronic databases, 49 electronic resources, and 2,711 electronic journals.  This is now our digital library portal and exists to support our seminary's move from a residential classroom based research and teaching Seminary to one committed to finishing the semester with online instruction, remote library services, and work. Remote access, tutorials, guides, and Help Desk services on this blog are thus intended for LPTS students, faculty, and employees.
