Students studying at the Montreal School of Theology who have an active McGill ID card and are currently McGill students (M. Div. I and II students) have access to all electronic resources (on campus and remotely) and services (including borrowing privileges and Interlibrary Loans) available through McGill Libraries.
M. Div. III students and students who are not registered at McGill (such as those taking certificate/online courses) have different privileges. See below for more information about library access for each of these groups. Please also see our “Other library resources” section for more options for those not registered as McGill students.
M. Div. III Students
Electronic resources: you can access McGill’s e-journal, e-book and database collection on site with a guest login at a McGill Library. No remote access is provided, however.
Borrowing books and other services: As per the “Borrowers from Other Quebec Universities” page, “Faculty members and 3rd year Masters of Divinity students of the Montreal School of Theology who don’t already have a McGill ID may request a McGill Library Borrowing Card on presentation of a letter from the School.” This letter will be presented to you at orientation and will allow you to borrow books and other physical materials from McGill libraries (including the Birks Reading Room) as well as the Rev. Dr. Joseph C. McLelland Library at the Presbyterian College.
Certificate/Online Course students
Electronic resources: if you are in Montreal, you can access McGill’s e-journal, e-book and database collection on site with a guest login at a McGill Library. No remote access is provided, however.
