We’re here to make your learning experience as enjoyable and non-frustrating as possible, so if you’re struggling with a research paper or can’t find something you need, please come ask us. We also have tutorials available on the How do I…? page to help you get started.
Free Mailing Service
This is a service available to enrolled BTS students only. If you can't make it to the library at the main campus, we can ship the book directly to your home. Just email your request to
- Your name and student ID
- The address we should mail it to
- Type of item (book, DVD, etc.)
- Call number (this is listed in the online catalog)
Please note that it may take several days for the item to reach you.
TO RETURN ITEMS: If you are not able to return items to the main campus, you may return them to Joy in the City’s return bin during class hours on Tuesday evenings, or you can mail them. Either way, please contact us to let us know. Our mailing address is:
- Biblical Theological Seminary Library
- 200 North Main Street
- Hatfield, PA 19440
Borrowing from Other Libraries
We have borrowing agreements with 50+ libraries across the country, so this is an option if you can’t visit the main campus or need something we don’t have. Click HERE to see the complete list of libraries.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
If you need something the library doesn't own or have access to, we can probably get it for you through interlibrary loan. Just find the item in the catalog, click the “Request Item” button, and fill out the required contact information.
Study Space and Computer Lab
No matter your studying style, we have someplace to match: quiet zones, study carrels, large tables to spread out on, and conference rooms for group studying. (If you’d like to reserve a conference room, please let us know at least one day in advance.) The entire library also has wireless internet, as well as a copy machine and computer lab with a scanner and black-and-white and color printers. If you need a sugar or caffeine boost, we have a cocoa and coffee bar.
If you’re a D.Min. student needing to have your dissertation bound,
as well as optional submission forms for RIM and TREN.
If you’re interested in having a personal book rebound, we’d be happy to go over prices and timing with you; generally, it takes about a month for an order to be processed and returned, but we don’t send them in on a regular schedule.
