Library Search

Searching above will take you into Primo and limit your results to the Portland Library Catalog. Primo contains around 80 electronic collections with full-text available for download. You can also search our partner libraries and request resources through inter-library loan.


Research Databases

Research databases contain searchable collections of professional and published content like journal articles. Information distributed through such databases has been reviewed by experts and originates from reliable, accurate, and authoritative sources as compared to internet searches. Searches may yield a citation, abstract, or full text.

While using a computer connected to the network at one of Western’s campuses, you will not need to login. However, when accessing databases while off campus, you will need to login using your SemConnect account which is the same login used for accessing SIS. When you login, please make sure to add @westernseminary.edu to the end of your username like this: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
