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 offices for the Theology Librarians, Theology Reserve, Theology Reference, Theology Periodicals (current and bound), Diocesan Journals, and general collection material for Philosophy, Psychology, Religion, World Religions, Bible and Theology are all located on the third floor. There are also computers, a photocopier, and many study tables and carrels. The Urban T. Holmes reading area is furnished with comfortable leather overstuffed furniture. The third floor is the "quiet" study floor in the library, and there is a locked group-study room reserved for Theology students.
