Seminary Students: loans from the Eastern Cluster of Lutheran Seminaries and other libraries are available to current LTSS students, interns, faculty, and staff. Interlibrary loans from non-cluster libraries are available to all current students who may need books or journal articles which the library does not own. Please use the new ECCO catalog. Log in to request books and articles from ULS. For books and articles not available at Lineberger Library or ULS, you may complete this form for books and this form for articles. You may also email Konni or Sandy with the title, author, and call number of your request, or complete the gold paper request form if you are on campus.
Our database ECCO contains the holdings of our Eastern Cluster seminary libraries. You will therefore be able to locate and check out books from Philadelphia and Gettysburg. You will find these items in our database with the location names of PHILA and GETTY. In order to check out an item from one of these locations, please ask for a green form at the circulation desk.
Please plan ahead when making a cluster request. Since all items are shipped using the postal service, it can take a week or longer for your item to be delivered. Items cannot be sent priority mail. Your request will be processed that day and you will be notified when the book is available for pickup (approximately 1 week). You may be charged a $5.00 fine if you do not pick up an item that you have requested. Only 5 books at a time may be borrowed from the cluster libraries.
Eastern Cluster loans are available to faculty emeriti, auditing students, faculty spouses, and alumni. For more information, please contact the Lineberger Library staff or call the service desk at 803-461-3269.
