Books and Ebooks

Find ebooks (LRU ID and password required to open document)


Find print books in the  Online Catalog . Our ECCO database contains the holdings of our Eastern Cluster seminary libraries, including Southern, Philadelphia, and Gettysburg. Philadelphia and Gettysburg seminary libraries have shut off lending to LTSS until at least April 1 during Covid-19, and will be reassessed after April 1, 2020. If the book you need is not in one of the three seminary libraries, Sandy Leach or Konni Shier can help you locate and borrow most books AFTER normal library lending resumes.
