Webster-Eden Library System
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.

  • Eden Theological Seminary is an ecumenical school related to the United Church of Christ. Eden offers programs leading to the Master of Divinity, Master of Theological Studies, Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies, and Doctor of Ministry degrees.
  • Webster University is an independent, multi-campus university with students at 106 U.S. and international extended campuses. Webster offers Bachelor and Masters Degrees in Arts, Sciences, Business Administration, Fine Arts, Music, and Nursing; Master of Arts in Teaching; and Doctor of Management.

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, inter-library loan, and collection development are overseen by a Cooperative Library Advisory Board.
