Library Resources

The Digital Theological Library

The Baptist Seminary of Kentucky is a co-owner of the Digital Theological Library (DTL) which is the primary library for all students. The DTL is a growing, purpose-built, comprehensive collection of resources for theological education.

Inter-Library Loan/Document Delivery

If you are in need of a resource (article, book, or chapter of a book) that is not already available to us through the DTL or the LRC, please fill out the relevant form under the ‘Library’ tab in Populi.

Other Libraries

The Seminary is also fortunate to have additional library resources available. In Louisville students have access to the Simmons College of Kentucky Library.  Through these arrangements, BSK students have access to collections of information resources to support curricular needs.

All students are encouraged to explore what other libraries (theological, academic, and public) might be in their area. Feel free to contact the seminary librarian to discover the information useful to your learning.

Library Gifts and Donations

Monetary donations for the purchase of library materials to support the curriculum are always welcome and gratefully accepted. The Baptist Seminary of Kentucky accepts gifts of library materials only in very rare cases and the Seminary welcomes and encourages matching funds for processing, housing, and providing access to any donated library materials.

BSK has named its library in honor of longtime supporters Dr. Bill and Joyce Holmes, the school announced during its fall convocation Sept. 2.
