Our copy of Vitor Westhelle's After heresy: colonial practices and post-colonial theologies is missing. The book has a white cover, with a half-tone image from Jan van Kessel the Elder's 1666 painting, The Continent of America on the front; 200 pages in length; about 9 inches tall; and probably shows some wear and tear. If you've seen it, please see it safely home: it's needed for spring 2020 reserve. Drop it off at the circulation desk or in the book drop in the LSTC lobby. Thank you.

Monday through Friday: 8:30 am to 10 pm
Saturday: 10 am to 4:30 pm
Sunday: 5 pm to 10 pm

The library will close at 4:30 pm on Thursday 9 April 2020, and remain closed through Sunday 12 April 2020 for the Paschal Triduum.

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.
