A reciprocal borrowing program for the CLS library

CLS has joined a reciprocal borrowing program through the American Theological Library Association (ALTA). This will be a great help to our distance education students, who can borrow books from participating theological libraries in their own communities. It will also help our local students and faculty members while travelling. If either of these situations pertains to you, check with CLS librarian Anna Yang for details on how to take advantage of this program!

New Library Resources

Starting immediately, our library cardholders have direct access to a broad range of critical electronic resources through The Alberta Library (TAL). Among the most useful resources are the ATLA Serials and EBSCO databases. For access, go to the CLS library website: http://concordiasem.ab.ca/research/library_information.php .
