|Books (including theses and microforms)||The OPAC is accessible at any time via the internet (https://gordonconwell.on.worldcat.org/). It will tell you which of the GCTS libraries owns the item, whether it is on the shelf, in reshelving, or on order, and the due dates of books that are checked out.|
|Periodicals||Print periodicals are located in alphabetical order by title on the first floor of the library. Microfiche periodicals are located in the first floor cabinet next to the microfiche printer. Please ask at the circulation desk if we can help.|
|Indexing||To find material in journals, use the periodical indexes. The most helpful is the American Theological Library Association's Religion Index, an extensive index of periodical articles, book reviews, collected essays, and theses published since 1949 (also available in print in annual editions). Now also consult ATLA’s ATLAS, which has the full text of over fifty journals. The public access computers also include other indexes, some of which include the full text of the item.|
|Audiovisuals||A few hundred videos, hundreds of audio cassettes (many uncataloged), and a few kits (cataloged) are available.|
|Newspapers and magazines||The most recent issues of newspapers (USA Today; Wall Street Journal) are kept on the newspaper rack on the second floor. Current issues of academic journals and popular magazines (Journal of Biblical Literature; Christianity Today, Christian Century) are kept in the current periodicals area on the first floor|
