BTI Libraries

Together, the libraries of the schools of the Boston Theological Institute own a million and a half volumes in theology and related disciplines. The collections are accessible to all BTI students and faculty with a BTI library card, obtained at the library of the student or faculty member's home institution.  Student BTI library cards are valid for one academic term at a time; faculty BTI library cards are valid for one academic year.

Most of the BTI libraries provide detailed information about their collections and services on their websites. Library staff members can assist you with specific questions about holdings.

Books not owned by one's school library may be borrowed by BTI students and faculty from any other BTI school library upon proof of school affiliation and completion of any registration required by the library. If you are unable to travel to another BTI library to check out books in person, you may request an inter-library loan (ILL) through your school library. 

Unless requested by another borrower, books may be renewed at the circulation desk of the lending library. Specific library renewal policies may differ.

Books borrowed from other BTI libraries may be returned through the MLS (Massachusetts LIbrary System) by leaving them at any BTI library circulation desk.  

Fines for overdue materials and replacement costs for lost materials are charged according to the policy of the lending library. Failure to pay fines or return recalled material will result in the loss of the individual’s borrowing privileges at all BTI libraries.
