CTS Distance Education students can borrow anything from Hekman's physical collection using their Seminary student ID card (except for items from a few special collections, such as Reference and Rare Books). Borrow up to 75 books at a time, for a check out period of 6 weeks, but remember to return those items on time! You will receive an email from the library when your items are due soon, as a reminder, but remember that you can also log in to your library account any time to check your due dates and renew items. Most books can be renewed multiple times, unless they have been requested by another patron.
For more general circulation policies, see the library's Circulation page.
Tips for Searching in Hekman Library:
Even if Hekman Library doesn't own a particular book or article that you need, you can borrow or get a copy from another library through our MeL and ILL sharing services. Just use the links below to search outside of Hekman's holdings and make requests - if you have any questions or problems, the librarians are always available to help!
If you are further than 40 miles from campus (see map below), you can ask the library to send you books by mail or UPS - just contact Paul Fields directly with the titles of the items you need. We pay the shipping there, and you are responsible for for shipping them back before they are due.
