Palmer Student Library Orientation: Databases

Theological Studies Databases

To access these, you will be prompted to sign-in using your Eastern login.

Logging into Databases, etc.

When you want to go into a database, a box will pop up and you will be required to  log in before the information is available to you.  Your Eastern ID and password -  which is the same one you use to log onto Brightspace - will need to be entered to gain access.

If you have questions, please contact Warner Library at 610-341-1777 or


Palmer Seminary students have access to print books AND electronic books! The following links take you to our electronic book databases where you can search on a topic of your choice.

Rapid ILL

Have you found a journal article that library does NOT have full-text access to? Don't worry! We can get it for you within 48 hrs. and have it delivered straight to your email. This service is called Rapid ILL. To use it, access the link below. Research just got easier!

Remember - when requesting an article, please make sure all the information boxes are filled in. The ISSN is most important! It is the mechanism that sends the request to a library who has the article.
