If the library is open and you are on campus, you may wish to search one of the following library catalogs. Call numbers of books in these libraries are often the same as call numbers in Turpin Library at DTS.

  • SMU library
  • SWBTS library
  • OCLC WorldCat. To narrow down your search to materials located in Turpin Library, scroll down to the Limit availability to: section and check the box for Items in my library.

If the library is open and you are on campus, you may wish to consult Religious Books, 1876-1982 (shelved in the BIB-CENTER, Z7751 .R385 1983). This book is indexed by author, title, and subject and provides LC call numbers. While you are unlikely to find the exact book you want, a subject search will give you a call number that will serve well enough for browsing the library shelves.

Alternative: Ask reference staff

If the library is open and you are on campus, ask reference librarians for help.
