Concordia Seminary LIbrary Access

During this time, we are attempting to maintain sufficient access to needed resources.   

What about course reserves?

If you request reserves through the catalog, these will appear unavailable.  Therefore, you should use our Google book request form.   

We will check out the item to you for 2 days.   If you need the book longer, you can send an email to Donna at  If there are not other patrons requesting the item, we can renew it remotely.  Please do NOT worry about fines.  We will address these as the books are returned.

Is the library open?

The library is open in a limited capacity for study and access to the reference collection MWF 9am-3pm.  Drop-ins will be accommodated as space allows.
