Welcome to the Phillips Theological Seminary Library!

We offer a wealth of information that will assist you as you pursue your graduate degrees in the variety of programs we have to offer. We have the largest graduate theological library in the region (extending from Dallas to Kansas City & St. Louis to Denver.)

The library is staffed during all hours of operations. Our primary responsibility is to serve as an interface between our students & their information needs.

Whether you’re looking for a book, ebook, journal, digital resource, or how to help format a research paper—you can never ask too many questions! We are here to help you.

The library not only offers you a multitude of resources for your graduate studies, it can offer a quiet place for contemplation, study, & preparing classwork. 

We look forward to meeting you & working with you on your spiritual journey at Phillips Theological Seminary.

Requests for purchase

The Library welcomes suggestions from the student community. All requests are evaluated based on the current Phillips library collections & availability of funds. Priority will be given to requests that support the mission of the seminary. Requests will be processed through normal library ordering procedures.

Phillips Seminary students are the library's major service commitment.

The library is always working to find new ways to connect students to the library's offerings and to teach students how to best use the resources from electronic books, the ATLA Religion Database, to biblical commentaries for check-out.

Phillips Theological Seminary offers Christian graduate theological education
in service of intelligent, just, and compassionate religious and civic communities. We welcome
students to a safe space for truth-seeking conversations about the Bible, Jesus, and faithful living.
Courses available on campus and online for certificate, diploma, MDiv, MAMC, MASJ, & MTS
programs, and on campus for the DMin program.
