STU Libraries

The STU online catalog can be found at

Lutheran Theological Seminary Saskatoon cooperates with its Saskatoon Theological Union (STU) partners, St. Andrew’s College and the College of Emmanuel & St. Chad, and with Horizon College & Seminary to manage their libraries as a unified system. This provides students and faculty from all three colleges, as well as public users, with access to over 120,000 items embracing a wide range of theological topics.

STU Libraries provide full reference services which include search assistance and interlibrary loans. Internet access is available through ground and wireless formats; STU Libraries’ electronic databases and indexes can be searched from the libraries or remotely. LTS students can obtain an STU Libraries card from the LTS Library. This card is good for all four libraries, and lending policies are the same across STU Libraries' system. Please ask library staff about borrowing privileges at the University of Saskatchewan Library.

The Otto Olson Memorial Library, located on the main floor of the Lutheran Theological Seminary, houses approximately 45,000 items, including books, journals and other media. Biblical studies, Near Eastern Christianity, and the Reformation (particularly Luther’s works) are significant strengths.
