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 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 are a couple of group-study rooms available for Theology students.
Beginning this semester, the Library is implementing a new system to provide access to electronic resources. The new system is called OpenAthens, and will use single sign-on authentication. Some of the benefits of OpenAthens are a more secure and reliable experience and no more "proxy error" access issues. All library patrons must log in to access online resources regardless of whether they are on or off campus. The login credentials are the same as the ones you use for Banner and campus email. (Tip: leave off @sewanee.edu from your username; your password is the Banner password)
