Although it is possible to find some resources by using an Internet search engine, Squires Library provides easy access to a large collection of Academic resources, the use of which will be smiled upon by your professors. Squires Library provides several different ways to access these library resources and library personnel are available to assist you with your research needs. We encourage you as a distance student to take advantage of these valuable resources made available to you in order to make your academic endeavors a great success.
Your research should begin on the library's Homepage from which students can search through the different available resources. Theses resources include access to the library’s large collection of e-books, as well as many databases that provide indexing and (in many cases) full text of scholarly articles. To access many of the resources available to you as a seminary student enrolled in courses, you will be required to sign in using a specific "username" and "password." The Seminary personnel will provide the "username" and "password" to you or you can login to Moodle in order to obtain the information. If you need assistance getting started in your research, the library provides a series of Instructional Tutorials.
