Saint Paul School of Theology provides information resources, reference services, instruction in research methods, and study facilities in support of the teaching and learning goals of its MDiv, MA, and DMIN programs, currently offered through two unique campus collaborations with Church of the Resurrection in the Greater Kansas City area and Oklahoma City University in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The primary constituents of library services are the students, faculty, and staff of Saint Paul. Secondary constituents are alumni and lay and professional ministers in need of resources for ongoing church work. Reference services, instruction, and collection development are provided through the employment of qualified personnel in both locations, and expanded access to facilities and collections beyond those owned by Saint Paul School of Theology is provided through use and borrowing agreements with other libraries.
