Austen K. deBlois Library at Palmer Seminary

Get Started...


The Austen K. deBlois Library of Palmer Theological Seminary will be merging with Warner Library at the St. Davids campus. Palmer Library will begin moving its collections to Warner beginning January 1, 2016. To facilitate the transition, Spring semester open hours will be limited to:

Mondays, 3:00pm - 7:00pm
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1:00pm - 7:00pm
Saturdays, 10:00am - 2:00pm

**CLOSED Holy Week, March 20-27**

Beginning March 4, the Palmer Core collection will be available and accessible at Warner Library. You will be able to browse the stacks and pull books yourself. Ask at the Warner Library Information Desk for assistance. (Palmer Main collection will remain in the Seminary warehouse through the end of Spring semester.)

Students, faculty, and staff may continue to request books through the online catalog for pickup at Palmer (open hours only) or Warner Library. Books may be returned to Warner or to Palmer Library in the book drop.

The reference materials in Palmer Library’s Reference collection are also available in Warner Library’s Reference collection. These include commentaries, concordances, dictionaries and encyclopedias.

SEPTLA borrowing letters may be requested by emailing semlibr@eastern.edu. Letters will be scanned and emailed to you, so please plan ahead. A SEPTLA borrowing letter allows Palmer Master’s and DMin students to use other seminary libraries in the Philadelphia area.

Current and past semester syllabi are now available in the Dean’s Office.

For helpful tips on using the online catalog, research databases, e-books, and interlibrary loan, please visit the Palmer Student Library Orientation at http://libguides.eastern.edu/palmerlibraryorientation.
