Claremont School of Theology students, faculty, and staff have access to both the Mark O. Hatfield Library at Willamette University and the Digital Theological Library. You should search the DTL first, especially if you are not local to Salem. For more information on the DTL, see below.
For print materials and interlibrary loan, use the Hatfield Library, and log in with your Willamette email credentials.
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 access resources through 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).
Please do not use the DTL's Interlibrary Loan option. Click here for ILL access through Hatfield Library.
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.

CST Faculty and Staff have the same borrowing privileges as the rest of WU's faculty and staff.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we encourage you to contact ATLA member libraries before requesting privileges. Many institutions are limiting physical access to their libraries.
Hatfield Library is a member of the American Theological Library Association (ATLA) reciprocal borrowing program. Students, faculty, and staff of CST and Willamette may obtain borrowing privileges at other member libraries around the country. Borrowing privileges are subject to the policies of individual member libraries.
