Course Reserves

  • We put course texts on reserve in the Library. The reserve shelf is directly across from the main Library entrance. Materials are listed by the faculty member’s last name. These items are for shared use within the Library. They may be borrowed overnight during the last half-hour we are open, but must be returned when the Library opens the following business day.

Computers, Printing, Copying

  • We have 5 computers in the Quiet Study that have the Microsoft Office suite and other tools installed for research use. In the main reading room, there are 3 additional computers for use in searching the catalog and other databases. All use of these computers must comply with the Hartford Seminary Computer Use Policy.
  • You may print or copy in the main reading room. Printing and copying is black & white only. About printing
