Hi! I’m Virginia Dearborn, Information Services* Librarian at Princeton Theological Seminary. On behalf of all of us in the Library, welcome to the PTS Library’s website! In less than two minutes, I will show you how to navigate the home page.

Let’s get started. In the center of the screen, you’ll find the Library Search tool. The tabs and search boxes are great for looking things up in the Seminary’s Library catalog, Princeton University’s Library catalog, and for searching other resources, like databases, digital collections, and the Theological Commons. This feature is user-friendly, but if it seems like nothing is happening, you probably need to turn off the pop-up blocker in your browser and try your search again.

Check out the Quicklinks in the lower left-hand corner of the screen. They will take you directly to a resource, where you can do more specific searching.

Did you notice the menus at the top of the page? They are another useful way to navigate the site. You’ll find everything from frequently asked questions to research guides, information about library services to descriptions of our many rich and valuable theological collections. Take a look around!

The slideshow on the right highlights Library news and resources.

As you explore the site, feel free to use the toolbar near the top of each page to share and save content. Have fun with it!

You can also subscribe to our RSS feed from the Library home page: http://www.ptsem.edu/library. And don’t forget to join us on Facebook and Twitter. Simply click on the icons in the top right corner of any page.

If you have any questions about our website, please let me know by using the Contact the Library Webmaster link on the home page.

*My title is now Web Services Librarian.
