Eligible students (see policies tab) can request books from the Goddard and Lindsell Libraries (South Hamilton, MA & Charlotte, NC). These items will be sent by mail to the student at the seminary's cost and are to be returned by mail at the student's cost.
Only books that are owned by either the Goddard or Lindsell Libraries are eligible to be loaned. If a student needs a book not currently in the collection, it is best to request the book through a local public library.
We recommend that all students familiarize themselves with the services available at their public and theological libraries! Why?
All students using library services are subject to library policies of each branch, including fines.
To request up to six books, find their availability in our Online Catalog. A book eligible to be sent will display as Location: Hamilton - Goddard Circulating Coll…Available or Location: Charlotte Circulating Coll…Available.
Copy and paste the Title, Author, Location and Availability into:
Depending on your location, you will be notified by email or phone when books have been sent directly to you or are available for pickup at your nearest GCTS library branch. Regardless of your location, books must be returned by mail directly to the lending library and postmarked before or on their due date.
Attention Charlotte students: If you live or work within a 30 mile radius of the Charlotte campus or commute there weekly, please note this in your email request.
Attention Hamilton students: Students based at the Hamilton campus will receive items more quickly if requested through InterLibrary Loan. See instructions.
