Using Hekman Library from Off-Campus
Wherever Calvin community members are researching or using the library from off-campus, our goal is to support you in your academic studies:
Hekman librarians offer remote research assistance via a number of options, including phone, e-mail, text, and live-chat. We can also meet with you individually by appointment (over Teams, Zoom, or your chosen videoconferencing platform). Consult the library's Research Services page for details.
You may also want to review our "Get Connected! with Hekman Library" guide, which provides an introduction to using the library's resources and services from off-campus, or check out our videos on the Hekman Library YouTube channel.
Remote Online Access
If you're off-campus, you can access the library's online resources by starting at the library home page, and entering your Calvin username and passphrase when prompted. (See alternate log-in instructions for seminary users.)
Off-Campus for Seminary Students, Faculty, and Staff
For remote online library access, see these log in instructions for the Calvin Theological Seminary community. Seminarians or interns doing their field education are encouraged to use local resources as part of their training experience. But in certain cases when it may be helpful and necessary to get materials from Hekman Library, please contact our Theological Librarians Paul Fields and Anne Harrison.
