About the Webster-Eden Library System

The Webster-Eden Library System, originally established in 1969, is a cooperative program of Webster University and Eden Theological Seminary. It consists of Webster University's Emerson Library and Eden Theological Seminary’s Luhr Reading & Reference Library.

The mission of the Webster-Eden Library System is to support the teaching, research, and intellectual pursuits of Eden Theological Seminary and Webster University. To achieve its mission, the Webster-Eden Library System, governed by the provisions of a joint agreement between both institutions and in accordance with the mission statements of the libraries of each school, provides appropriate information resources and services for the institutions' students, faculty, and staff.

This unique arrangement is a concrete expression of an imaginative and innovative spirit in higher education. Shared library functions, including acquisitions, serials, cataloging, systems, interlibrary loan, and collection development are overseen by a Cooperative Library Advisory Board.
