Effective Tuesday 15 September 2015 we're changing the way e-resources are accessed: instead of having on- and off-campus access pages, there is now only one page, accessed by clicking on the E-Resources menu tab. If you're on-campus, click on the name of the e-resource link, and you'll be taken to the resource as no username/password is needed; if you're off-campus, click on the name of the e-resource, and you'll be prompted for your username/password. Note that your username and password are not changing: your password remains your complete @lstc.edu, mccormick.edu or go.mccormick.edu email address; your password remains your i.d. number. Note also that you may need to empty your brower's cache (browsers include: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Explorer, etc.); otherwise, the E-Resources menu tab may not appear. Instructions on emptying your cache are available here. Questions? problems? send us an email at email@example.com.
Compliments of Brill, we have trial access to v. 1-159 of the online Vetus Testamentum supplements and v. 1-151 of the online Novum Testamentum supplements until 6 November 2015. The supplements — which include both monographs and collections of essays — cover the whole range of Old and New Testament study.
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.
