    Library Resources-Special Collections

    The Library is an essential part of the educational program of Luther Seminary. It holds over 250,000 items. In addition, the library subscribes to approximately 500 periodicals and regularly expands its collection of video, audio, microfilm and online resources.

    Special collections include the Carl Døving Hymnology Collection of about 1,000 hymnbooks and the Jacob Tanner Catechism Collection with translations of Luther’s Small Catechism in 170 languages and dialects. The Special Collections Room, accessible by appointment, houses all pre-1800 volumes and features unique items such as a 1531 edition of the Augsburg Confession printed in Wittenberg.

    Students have access to an additional 500,000 volumes available in the other four theological libraries of the Minnesota Consortium of Theological Schools. Reciprocal borrowing privileges are extended throughout the Consortium.

    All collections may be searched through dedicated search terminals in the library, as well as through the library’s web page. The web page also provides links to digital resources, to the Minnesota Consortium of Theological Schools catalogs, and to additional research resources.

    Other Resources

    Luther Seminary is a member of the Minnesota Consortium of Theological Schools (MNCTS), formally organized in 1971. Other member schools are:

    • Bethel Theological Seminary (Baptist General Conference)
    • Luther Seminary (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America)
    • School of Theology at Saint John’s University, Collegeville (Roman Catholic)
    • The Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity, University of St. Thomas (Roman Catholic)
    • United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities (United Church of Christ)

    The consortium makes the resources of the participating faculties and institutions more readily available to students from each participating school, strengthens the degree and continuing education programs of the schools, provides a channel for inter-faculty fellowship and discussion and advances ecumenical understanding.

    Together, the five theological libraries of the consortium hold more than 500,000 volumes. These holdings constitute the most significant resource in religious studies between Chicago and the Pacific Coast.
