The libraries of the Washington Theological Consortium contain over two million volumes and artifacts in theology, religious studies, and related disciplines. Students and faculty members who hold a currently valid ID from a Consortium school are eligible for borrowing privileges at the following libraries during the academic year, and, on a more limited basis, during the summer months. Students and faculty members need to have the WTC Library Borrowing Form signed by their home librarian, plus a valid school ID to present to the other libraries for borrowing privileges to begin.A faculty member or student who wishes to borrow books must first present a WTC Library Borowing Form validated for the current semester and signed by the home librarian from the Consortium member school, and a current faculty or student ID card from the Consortium member school (that includes or is accompanied by photo ID).
The staffs of the libraries are prepared to assist you, to explain their collections in more detail, and to answer your questions. (Some Libraries have restricted visiting or appointments only during the pandemic, so please call ahead for updates.)
