ATLA Reciprocal Borrowing Program

The Manuel Library is an institutional member of ATLA (the American Theological Library Association). This association includes a large number of libraries throughout the United States and even a few in Canada.

One benefit to the library’s membership is participation in the ATLA Reciprocal Borrowing Program, which allows PIU students, faculty, and staff in-person borrowing privileges to the physical collections at any of the participating libraries in accord with their borrowing policies.

Though not an agreed-upon aspect of the Program, it is possible that these libraries would also allow on-site access to their digital resources as well.

Our passion is to graduate men and women who are thoroughly equipped to be successful leaders who obey the Great Commandment, fulfill the Great Commission, and live abundant lives for the glory of God.
