     7. What special services does the library provide?

The library also features a collection of books related to Emanuel Swedenborg, a seventeenth century Swedish theologian. Swedenborgian churches or Church of the New Jerusalem still exist in Canada and the United States. 

Currently located at the Lutheran Theological Seminary, the library provides a collection of resources focussed on Mennonite and Anabaptist information.  This collection was established based on a donation from Walter and Ruth Klaassen.  The collection is currently under review and will be a feature of the new collected library resources available at the St. Andrew's location in September, 2020. This special collection includes numerous primary source documents.  

     8. Why can't I get an integrated listing of the library's physical and on-line resources?

The library is located on the University of Saskatchewan campus.  This provides the advantage of accessing the University on-line resources while on campus, but means that the STU on-line resources must be protected with password access to differentiate from the University resources, since we fall within their proxy zone.
As a result, we provide a direct listiing of our physical resources through our catalog, and access to our on-line resoures through the links from the catalog.  We continue to seek an integrated service and improved access to our resources.  Any specific questions should be addressed to library staff.
