Welcome to the Christoph Keller, Jr. Library!

The Library staff welcomes General Theological Seminary students and faculty as well as members of the public. There are some new rules that we ask you to observe while using the library:

  • If your are not fully vaccinated, you must wear a mask in the library. Patrons who are fully vaccinated do no need to wear masks. Visitors will need to show proof of vaccination to enter the Seminary.
  • Food and drink are permitted in the lobby.
  • Please continue to maintain proper spacing: no more than 2 people may sit at the library tables at opposite corners.
  • No more than 4 people may use the study rooms and you must sign in.
  • Don’t crowd when waiting for service at the circulation or reference desk.
  • Please wash your hands regularly and remember that we have hand sanitizer in the lobby.

Please note that we have greatly added to our electronic resources; these can be accessed remotely with your Populi login. Many reserve books are available online; please check the catalog before you come in. If you need help, please email us at library@gts.edu. Thank you.
