Hekman Library Users and Communities

Welcome Seminary Students!

Hekman Library is committed to providing students enrolled in Calvin Theological Seminary with resources and services that are important for academic success, regardless of distance or location. These services include access to print and electronic books, journal articles, interlibrary loan services, and research assistance.

Seminary students should use the Hekman Library Home Page, with its convenient links to research librarians for research assistance via email, telephone, or live chat. Theological Librarian Anne Harrison is available for assistance in the areas of theology and religion, but all of the librarians at Hekman Library are readily at your service.

Access for Seminary Users: There are a few differences for Seminary students when it comes to accessing library materials at Hekman.

  • Login: When logging into your library account and Hekman databases from off-campus, remember to use your 14-digit Seminary ID barcode number on the back of your ID card as both username and password (be sure to use all digits, including the 0s)
  • Check-out: All you need is your Seminary ID to check out items from the library; bring them to the circulation desk and remember to return them later by their due date. Most general collection materials from Hekman can be borrowed by Seminary students for 6 weeks with unlimited renewals. For more information on loan periods for special collection items, see our Library Circulation page
