Interested parties may apply for borrowing privileges by completing a Resource Application Form on site. Borrowing privileges are subject to approval by the director. Up to 5 items can be borrowed at a time: books for 30 days, CDs for 14 days, videos for 7 days. Non-circulating items may only be used on-site.
External researchers may submit an interlibrary loan (ILL) request for books in the library’s regularly circulating collection. They should do so via the ILL service of their home institution. Books available for borrowing via ILL all appear in WorldCat as being held by Holy Trinity Seminary. However, not all of Holy Trinity’s books appearing in WorldCat can be sent via ILL. The best way to determine whether an ILL request for a book will be successful is to search our local catalog. Only books with “Available” in the status field of the holdings line can be considered for sending via ILL. Click “More info” in the brief view of the catalog record for the book in order to display this line.
