Library Partnerships

The Gordon-Conwell Library System partners with many other libraries to offer services to our students both on and off campus.

Carolinas Theological Library Consortium (CTLC)

 

The Carolinas Theological Library Consortium (CTLC) was begun to allow greater resource sharing amongst the various schools with theology and/or religion programs in the greater Charlotte, North Carolina, area. It has grown over time to include institutions throughout North and South Carolina. Each school in the Consortium has agreed to abide by the following borrowing policies. Students are advised to have their current student identification with them to check out materials from another CTLC library.
