The San Diego Christian & Southern California Seminary Library supports the research and educational needs of San Diego Christian & Southern California Seminary students, faculty and staff. Knowledgeable librarians and staff work to connect your research needs to the right resources. Their goal to simplify research means providing access to print and online resources through the library catalog and research databases (collections), as well as providing research assistance, interlibrary loan (services), and library instruction (support).
