All currently enrolled Grace students have access to wonderful library resources and services. We share the library with the College of Biblical Studies (CBS) and Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS). This is an outstanding library with thousands of print and electronic resources, computer workstations, study rooms, meeting rooms, etc. The library is located inside the main CBS building adjacent to the Grace Southwest campus. The address for the library is:
7000 Regency Square Blvd. Houston, TX 77036
Library Phone Number: 832.252.4618
When you are present at the physical library, you may sign on to one of the library computers, allowing you to type, save, e-mail, upload or download material as needed.
Monday/Tuesday/Thursday: 8:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Wednesday: 8:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Saturday: 8:30 a.m.- 3:00 p.m.
To gain access to the library, please see the librarian or clerk on duty and let them know you are a current student at Grace School of Theology. The library staff person will verify that you are on the list of Grace students and you will be asked to show some proof of ID (driver’s license, etc.).
Visiting the Library Online
“Your Library Online: Available Any Time, Any Place!” As a Grace Student, you have automatic access through the CBS website to eight major electronic databases (See the Student Handbook for more information.) Remember, only registered students of Grace School of Theology, College of Biblical Studies, and Dallas Theological Seminary are allowed to access these databases. It is unethical and illegal to allow anyone who is not a student, faculty member, or staff member at one of these schools to use the usernames and passwords provided to Grace students. When you are off-campus, you may access the databases above from home or any other computer Internet connection using the URL, user names, and passwords (found in Populi). The Library Catalog is open online 24/7 for your research needs. Library materials are organized according to the Library of Congress classification scheme and cataloged according to AARC2 cataloging standards and may be electronically searched through the KOHA operating system online at nine terminals in the Library proper or online from any computer. Materials may be put on reserve hold or renewed through the website login.
How to Reach Your Librarians
Your Grace School of Theology Librarians are eager to help you achieve all your educational goals. Librarians can help you understand your assignments, limit your topic, and find research materials in physical and electronic libraries. In fact, in graduate school, many students say that the librarian is their best friend! Your Grace Librarian works from the Main Campus in the Woodlands and is available to take your afternoon and evening telephone calls Monday-Thursday between 6:00 and 8:00 pm and Saturday 4:30-8:30. You can reach the library office at 281.298.6427 or call the campus toll-free number (877.476.8674) and your information can be relayed for a quick call-back. You may also reach our librarian via email. You may also contact the Grace Assistant Librarian, Mr. John Witmer, in person at the Grace/CBS Library between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm on Tuesday-Thursday or via email.
