Effective Tuesday 2 September 2014, we're changing the off-campus username that you use to access the digital resources to which JKM provides access. Your username will become your entire, or email address; your password remains your i.d. number. If you experience problems accessing the databases after Tuesday, write us at, using your McCormick or LSTC email address.

Just fyi: I-Share and off-site access to the databases are two different systems, and your username/passwords are different. Library staff doesn't have access to your I-Share username/password, as you chose that yourself when you created your JKM/I-Share account.

FYI evening students: Holly Wilson, LSTC Ph.D student, is available for research assistance Tuesday and Wednesday nights, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The JKM wireless networks (JKM-2N, JKM-2S,  JKM-2C, and JKM-3E) are now password-protected to ensure greater security. Stop by the circulation desk on your way in and ask for the password.

Also, BibleWorks 9 has been loaded on five of the public computers in the library.

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.
