This week: “Learn More About the Princeton Seminary Library

Newly named in 2021, the Theodore Sedgwick Wright Library offers substantial resources for theological study and research at all levels. In addition to circulating and periodical collections, the Wright Library contains a growing number of Digital Collections, including the Theological Commons. Particular strengths of Special Collections are its documentation of the Seminary’s history, including works by and about Seminary faculty; American Presbyterianism; English and American Puritanism; Presbyterian missions; hymnology; works by and about Reformed theologians Karl Barth and Abraham Kuyper; and the history of Presbyterians in Korea. The Wright Library currently receives thousands of journals, annual reports of church bodies and learned societies, bulletins, transactions, and periodically issued indices, abstracts, and bibliographies.

Join us for an in-depth conversation about what the Wright Library has to offer with Dr. Jeremy Wallace, a graduate of the PhD program who now serves as the Assistant Director for Research and Public Services, and Dr. Brian Shetler, Head of Special Collections and Archives.
