Congratulations to all those who will be graduating very soon. As you frenetically and/or frantically wrap up your studies, here are a few things to add to your checklist (not that you needed more, of course):

  • Return all JKM, I-Share and interlibrary loan materials to JKM before you graduate.
  • Inform us of your graduating, and let us know of any changes in your personal information (change of address, permanent email address, phone number), so we can update your status to alumnus/alumna. Contact us at jkmcirculation
  • Remember that as an alumnus/alumna you still enjoy borrowing privileges at JKM, with a limit of 5 items out at any one time.
  • Stop by the circulation desk for a JKM borrower's card if you're required to turn in your i.d. with its JKM barcode.
  • JKM provides access to the ATLA Religion and ATLASerials databases to alumni. Send us an email at infocommons to request the generic username /password.


About the library
About the library

The JKM Library serves the students, faculty and staff of the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago and McCormick Theological Seminary. The JKM in our name was — from 1975 to 2004 — an initialism for Jesuit-Krauss-McCormick: Jesuit from the Jesuit School of Theology, which closed in 1981; Krauss from the Krauss Library, the original name of the merged collection when LSTC moved to Hyde Park in 1967; and McCormick for McCormick Theological Seminary, which joined the Jesuits and LSTC in the Hyde Park neighborhood in 1975). In 2004, in an agreement worked out with the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus, the name Jesuit was dropped, and we became officially known as the JKM Library.
