Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, policies and hours at the Mark O. Hatfield Library are frequently changing to adapt to institutional, local, state, and federal guidelines. The information in this guide may be overruled by some of these measures. For up-to-date information on Hatfield's COVID response, please check the library's front page here.
Students, faculty, and staff of CST have different needs and access than the wider Willamette community. This guide will point you toward the people and resources that are available to you.
You should no longer be using the CST Library catalog. For print resources, use the catalog of the Mark O. Hatfield Library at Willamette. For digital resources, see the information about the Digital Theological Library below.
The staff directory for Mark O. Hatfield library is here. That page also includes a contact form for general library questions.
The Theology Librarian and PhD Exams Coordinator is Maggie Froelich. See the sidebar on the right for contact information.

The CST community has access to Hatfield using their Willamette ID cards. Hatfield’s collection now includes 50,000 volumes in theological and religious studies and related fields that were moved up from CST’s library in Claremont. Visit library.willamette.edu to search the catalog and learn about Hatfield’s borrowing policies.
The DTL is an all-digital library of resources for theological and religious studies. It contains thousands of digital books, articles, and other materials, and is always growing. CST students, faculty, and staff have access to the DTL using their CST ID numbers.
Before you can search the DTL, you will be redirected to a login page. Choose "Claremont School of Theology" from the dropdown menu, and input your CST ID number (see the image below).
Members of the Willamette community that do not belong to CST may access the DTL while inside the Hatfield Library. For information, talk to someone at the circulation desk or email email@example.com.
