Princeton Theological Seminary’s library holds one of the world’s most important and respected collections — said to be one of the finest resources in the world for Christian theological scholarship, second only to the Vatican. The library is renowned for its depth, continuity, and ease of access to the collection. The Trustees’ vision for the new library is empowered by the convergence of need and opportunity. Sadly, the physical plant is no longer capable of protecting treasured texts, and lacks the capacity to house new acquisitions.
The new library will carry on the Seminary’s tradition as one of the world’s great theological libraries — rich and diverse. The new library will be a portal to the world of theological scholarship combining traditional and new technologies, offering expanded digital resources as well as increased space for scholars to meet and exchange ideas, and access for church leaders, pastors, scholars, and students in the ministry worldwide. Improvements to our Luce Library will integrate that existing facility with the new library building.
Gifts to the Endowment fund will support every aspect of the collection — digitizing, maintenance, preservation, and acquisitions — so they may be shared throughout the world.
