Welcome Palmer Seminary Students to your Library Resources!

Warner Library will be your main source for books, journals, and research databases.

  • Bible commentaries are located in the Reference section (Main Level) and in the Stacks on the Upper Level.
  • We welcome you to enjoy beverages and food while you study.
  • Should you need any assistance in locating resources, stop by the Information Desk on the Main Level. It's staffed by a Warner librarian during most of Warner Library's hours of operation.

SEPTLA and You!

Students currently enrolled in Palmer master’s and doctoral level courses have SEPTLA borrowing privileges, which allows you to use libraries at other seminaries in the Philadelphia area.

In addition, all Eastern University and Palmer Seminary students have access to many other college and university libraries in the tri-state area through TCLC.

Borrowing letters for SEPTLA and TCLC are available at the Warner Library Information Desk.
