Book Policies

Requesting Books

SBTS books can be mailed to current distance students inside the United States. Please fill out the Book Request form.

Books not owned by us – Can be requested through Interlibrary Loan.

Books that are checked out – Follow general guidelines for requesting books. We will place a hold on the item and ship it to you when it arrives. Please do not place holds on items yourself.

Items that cannot be sent – Periodicals, reference books, microfilm, microfiche, brittle books, restricted items, and materials in our special collections.

Turn-around time – Generally, requests are processed and sent in 24 hours. Items are sent via library rate which is slower than regular mail, so please allow time for shipping.

Returning books – You are responsible for the safe return of all books. Please send only 5 books per box. We recommend you insure and trace your package although this is not required.
