Hi! I’m Virginia Dearborn, Web Services Librarian at Princeton Theological Seminary. On behalf of all of us in the Library, welcome to the PTS Library website!

What can you find on the Library home page? In the center of the screen, you’ll find the a search box for Summon®, a library search engine designed to help you discover books, articles, reviews and other great library resources to support your research and course work. Use the Advanced Search link below the search box to do a more specific search.

In the lower left-hand corner of the screen, you’ll find a series of quick links that go directly to a particular library resource – such as the library catalog, an A-to-Z list of research databases – or your library account, where you can review a list of the library materials you’re currently borrowing.

The menus at the top of the page are another useful way to navigate. You’ll find everything from frequently asked questions to research guides, information about library services and exhibits to descriptions of our many rich and valuable theological collections.

Just below the menus, on the right-hand side, are the library building hours and a slideshow highlighting library news, events, and resources.

At the bottom of the page, next to the quick links, are the latest library RSS feed posts and new book recommendations which are featured with the hashtag #NewBookTues on the Library’s Facebook and Twitter accounts. And in the lower right-hand corner, you’ll find some contact information and a link to a feedback and suggestions form.

We hope you’ll share your thoughts and keep in touch with us. Links to PTS Facebook and Twitter accounts are at the top right of each page, and you can subscribe to our RSS feed using the orange RSS feed button on the Library home page: http://www.ptsem.edu/library.

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

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