Welcome to the Sewanee School of Theology Library home page.
Most of the library resources for the School of Theology are housed on the third floor of the Jessie Ball duPont Library. The entire Theology collection including Theology Reserve, Theology Reference, Theology Periodicals (current and bound), Diocesan Journals, as well as the general collection for Philosophy, Psychology, Religion, World Religions are all located on the third floor. There are also 16 computers, a photocopier, and numerous study tables and carrels. The Urban T. Holmes reading area is furnished with comfortable leather overstuffed furniture. Most importantly, the third floor is the "quiet" study floor in the library, and there is a locked group-study room reserved for Theology students.

You may select films from Swank’s offerings using this website: http://digitalcampus.swankmp.com/
There are various ways to search. Swank provides a listing by “academic department” and there is a listing by genre here: http://digitalcampus.swankmp.com/genres
