About the Library

The Western Seminary Library seeks to be a resource that supports theological research, scholarship, and life-long learning throughout the seminary’s sphere of influence. Western Seminary’s mission is to “serve as a catalyst and resource for spiritual transformation by providing, with and for the church, advanced training for strategic ministry roles.” A strong and effective library is a vital component to the fulfillment of this mission.

The Western Seminary Library is located in the Cline-Tunnell Library building on Western’s Portland campus, the Student Resource Centers of the Sacramento and San Jose campuses, and electronically via its webpages, thus serving the Western Seminary community.

Guests are welcome to visit the library and may apply for a complimentary library account. Please see the Locations page for information specific to each campus location.
