About the Library
Welcome to the Phillips Theological Seminary Library!
The library enhances the mission of Phillips Theological Seminary to cultivate vital communities, vital conversations, and the public good by providing resources and services that support the work and interests of the faulty, the students of Phillips, and the larger public.
We also provide assistance to:
- professional & lay religious leaders
- students from other schools of religion or seminaries
- all other visitors
Phillips is an ecumenically-oriented institution & the library's collections reflect the non-sectarian mission of the school. The library's focus is on the core materials necessary for Christian ministerial education, critical thinking, historical understanding & ethical judgment.
Our library collections comprise holdings of approximately 90,000 items, making it the largest graduate theological library in the region extending from Dallas to Kansas City & St. Louis to Denver. It serves as an important resource for theological students, religious professionals & researchers in the area.
