Students, regardless of location, have access to all of the Library’s holdings via the on-line public access catalog (OPAC), as well as the listing of journal items on the Library’s website. These titles are readily available for off-campus and distance learning students upon their request.
If you participate in a MABTS Distance Learning Program, it is always wise to utilize the available resources of Community College, College and University Libraries in your area in addition to your sources here at MABTS. For visitor privileges, if they require a Letter of Good Standing or a card showing you’re a current student, please contact library staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or Terrence Brown at email@example.com with your request.

Doctoral and Online Student Library Mailing Program beginning in January 2018
Doctoral and Online students living outside a 75 mile radius of Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary and The College at Mid-America are eligible to join the Library Mailing Program (LMP). To join the program, you must pay a minimum of $25.00 to the business office via check, cash, or money order. As packages are mailed to you first class and insured*, we will deduct the cost from the $25.00. As you near your limit, we will alert you that more money needs to be added to your LMP account. Any books that you return to the Library by mail will need to be sent first class and insured, at your expense.
The LMP is a Use-It-Or-Lose-It program. If at graduation, or the end of your time as a student at Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary and The College at Mid-America, you have money remaining on your LMP account; it will be applied to the general budget of the seminary.
Materials available for shipping include: circulating books, audios, DVDs, microfiche and microfilm. Non-circulating items such as reference materials and journal articles not available online can be copied by a member of Library staff. If you need a book or journal article copied and mailed to you, it will cost .10 per page. This fee will be deducted from the money you have on your LMP account. No more than 10 items at a time will be mailed.
If you need items/articles mailed to you, you will need to e-mail a list of needed materials to firstname.lastname@example.org. For circulating books, audios, DVDs, microfiche and microfilm, the list must include the title, author, year of publication, and call number for the items you need; the same applies for books needing to be copied. Should you need books only available at the Northeast Campus Library, we will request them and mail them to you as soon as they arrive at the Main Campus. If you need a journal article copied, please include title, year and volume of publication, title of article, and pages to be copied. Make certain your name, mailing address, and phone number are included in the request.
Doctoral and Online students living within the 75 mile radius of Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary and The College at Mid-America are not eligible to join this program and must obtain their books directly from the library.
*All books, going and coming, must be insured for replacement purposes on the offhand chance they are lost or damaged during shipping.
