Library Spotlight

Gullixson Hall Renovation Summer 2014


Construction will consist of two major parts: modernization of the elevator in the library stacks and addition of a new elevator to service the main floors of Gullixson Hall. Construction is scheduled to begin after commencement around May 19, with hopes of completion by early fall. With the additional elevator, new accessible restroom, and other modifications, the seminary is addressing long-held accessibility concerns in Gullixson Hall. 

Construction equipment and supplies may occupy a portion of the parking lot and, for a period of time, access may be limited to the south entrance. Construction noise, loudest during the initial demolition, will discourage most classes and other events from occurring in Gullixson over the summer months. The library plans to remain open although we may have to occasionally adjust our hours to accommodate construction activities.

Twentieth Century Religious Thought

Twentieth Century Religious Thought is our newest database. This collection includes materials related to key worldwide religious thinkers from the early 1900s until the turn of the 21st century. The collection reflects the increasingly global and pluralistic character of religious scholarship.

Reformation Research added to library catalog

Records from the Reformation Research Library, North America's most extensive collections of sixteenth century imprints in microform, have been added to our new library catalog.

Since 1986, Luther Seminary's Reformation Research Program has been building this collection of over 42,000 titles to meet the needs of researchers.

Thanks especially to Mary Ann Teske who spent countless hours doing some final cleanup as well as Ted Wilder, Director of the Office of Technology and Dr. Mary Jane Haemig, Director of the Reformation Research Program for working with the library to make this project possible.
