On Friday 1 June, JKM will migrate to an updated version of our online catalog (opac). Some enhancements include:

  • Your username will be your 14-digit barcode on the back of your JKM borrower card (begins with 29967) and your password will be your last name. The username and password that you previously created will not work.
  • Journal title searching
  • Call number searching and browsing
  • Ease of viewing on a screen of any size with full functionality
  • Chicago Style citation option
  • Compatible with Zotero so that you can save and tag records with Zotero or any other COinS-based application
  • A "similar items" feature when viewing a record that offers suggestions for resources that are similar to the current resource

A preview of the new opac is available here.

Monday through Thursday: 8:30 am to 10:30 pm
Friday: 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
Saturday: 10 am to 4:30 pm

The library will be closed Monday 28 May 2018 for the observance of Memorial Day.

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.
