From the JKM staff, congratulations to all students who will be graduating in the next week or so! Before you leave, stop by the JKM circulation desk and update your status to alumnus/alumna, return any JKM or I-Share materials you might still have checked out, give us your new address (both e-mail and street), and get — if you've had to turn in your school i.d. with the JKM barcode — a new borrower's card. Don't forget that as an alumna/alumnus, you still have privileges at JKM and access to the ATLAS database (the full-text portion of the ATLA Religion Database). To request the username/password to the ATLAS database, drop us an email at infocommons@jkmlibrary.org.

During the next few weeks Jim Schaal and assistants are replacing the flurorescent ceiling lights in the library with LED lights, the result of which is already apparent on the 3rd floor. More information is available here. Also, the JKM online catalog will be unavailable from from 5:00 PM Friday 12 June through 8:00 AM Monday 15 June 2015 as we'll be upgrading from Voyager 7.2.5 to 9.1.1.

About the library
About the library

The JKM Library serves the students, faculty and staff of the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago and McCormick Theological Seminary. The JKM in our name was — from 1975 to 2004 — an initialism for Jesuit-Krauss-McCormick: Jesuit from the Jesuit School of Theology, which closed in 1981; Krauss from the Krauss Library, the original name of the merged collection when LSTC moved to Hyde Park in 1967; and McCormick for McCormick Theological Seminary, which joined the Jesuits and LSTC in the Hyde Park neighborhood in 1975). In 2004, in an agreement worked out with the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus, the name Jesuit was dropped, and we became officially known as the JKM Library.
