About The J. Oliver Buswell Jr Library

Named for former dean and systematic theologian Dr. J. Oliver Buswell, Jr., Covenant’s library is a familiar place on campus for hundreds of students and diverse visitors each year. A renovation in 2001 tripled the size of the original building, which is now home to more than 95,000 volumes and provides access to well over 30 million items through partnerships with MOBIUS (a regional consortium of libraries) and other library networks.

Standout features of the Library include the Tait Rare Book Collection, the PCA Historical Center, and a full-service resource center for theological writing (The Scribe). All of the Library catalogs, interlibrary loan systems, databases, and collections are searchable online, providing on- and off-campus students uninterrupted access to resources for their academic research, assignments, sermon prep, personal and family reading, as well as other needs and interests.
