In November 2008, we opened up our catalog to searching via z39.50. This capability allows patrons to search the library catalog using third-party software, most notably, reference management applications like EndNote, RefWorks, etc. We recently upgraded our library system, and this change also modified the settings necessary to access our catalog via z39.50. Here are the new settings:
We trust you will find this feature useful in your studies. Contact us if you have any questions regarding this service.
At the top of the main library web page we have updated the “Search the Catalog” feature with WorldCat Local. Now, to use the many new features of WCL, you no longer need to go to sbts.worldcat.org, but you can navigate to our web page, type your search terms, and you will be taken directly to WCL to see your search results.
If you prefer the older OPAC, you can still search that, too, by clicking “Search the Catalog” on the left-hand side of our site.
If you’ve had a chance to explore WorldCat Local, we would love to hear what you think. Email us your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you use reference management software (such as Sente or Bookends), you can now add resources to your reference libraries directly from the SBTS catalog. The settings needed to access the catalog through reference management software are:
In the future, we plan to add more searchable fields to expand your research options through the seminary library. We hope this new capability assists you in your research endeavors for the glory of Christ.
