Hello, and welcome! My name is Virginia Dearborn and I am the Discovery & Web Services Librarian. I’ll give a quick introduction to the library resources available to you as Princeton Seminary alumni and then share some contact information for getting in touch with the team at Wright Library.

Princeton Theological Seminary provides access to one of the widest selections of resources available to alumni from any theological institution, from biblical commentaries, original language resources and reference works to e-books and articles. And it’s all free.

If you haven’t done this already, just call or email the IT Help Desk at 609-497-7812 or and request alum database access.

There are a couple of free, workflow streamlining extensions you can download into the browser of your choice: Lean Library and LibKey Nomad. There is more information about these extensions linked from the alumni page on the library website, where you will also find a list of all the research databases available to you as alumni.

I do want to be sure to note that there are some online library resources available to current students and not to graduates (unless you are inside the library). However, anytime you have a question about access, please feel free to ask me. Use the Discovery & Web Services contact form on the library website or call 609-497-3627.

Reference assistance is also available to you through the Reference Librarian contact form on the library website and at 609-497-7933.

As a graduate of Princeton Seminary, you also have free lifetime in-person borrowing privileges at Wright Library. Request an alumni identification card from the Seminary Public Safety office ( to borrow up to 30 books at a time for 28 days. That’s more than a book a day – so you don’t have to feel like you ever left seminary.
