Hekman Library for Seminary Distance Education
Librarian-crafted guide to services and resources in Hekman library for Calvin Seminary Distance Education students
Hekman Library is committed to providing students enrolled in Calvin Theological Seminary Distance Learning courses with resources and services that are important for academic success, regardless of distance or location. These services include access to print and electronic books, journal articles, interlibrary loan services, and research assistance.
From this page, you can easily navigate to the library catalog to search for books and ebooks, use Find Databases to access these resources, or explore other tools such as the Subject guides or MeL/ILL
Login to your library account using your 14-digit seminary ID barcode number on the back of your ID card as both username and password. With My Account, you can renew materials and check your account status; you'll also need to be logged in to access some electronic journals and database when you are off-campus
If Hekman Library doesn't own a copy of an article you need, we will get it from another library and we can send it to you. Print books are available via ILL, but cannot be sent via mail; you'll have to pick up and return to the physical library. PDF copies of certain articles and book chapters can also be ordered freely through ILL and sent to your email.
