Introduction to the Claremont School of Theology Library

The CST Library has three main sites through which we provide informational resources and assistance.

1. LibGuides is CST Library’s home site and scholarly communication platform, with faculty profiles and class guides, subject and assignment guides, as well as profiles of CST Library Scholars.

2. Ask a Librarian is CST Library’s online Reference service, providing answers to FAQ, tutorials, and descriptions of library policies and programs.

3. WorldCat Discovery is CST Library’s catalog and discovery service. It gives access to user accounts and enables discovery of about 70% of our holdings (print and digital) via a single search box. More involved research should make use of our A-Z Database List.
