Library hours Monday 21 August through Sunday 3 September 2017:
Monday through Friday: 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
Saturday and Sunday: Closed

The library will be closed on Monday 4 September 2017 for the observance of Labor Day. Regular academic hours resume on Tuesday 5 September 2017.

We're currently in the process of migrating from SFX to EBSCO's Full Text Finder (FTF) linking software. Linking software, simply put, is designed to take you, the researcher, from a citation (e.g. ATLA Religion Database) to the online location of the full text of an article or chapter (e.g.: JSTOR, a publisher's website, an open access journal, an e-book). Our hope is that when FTF is fully up and running, you'll find it to be a much more elegant and user-friendly solution to locating the full text of the material you need for your research.

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.
