About the DTL

The Digital Theological Library is a co-owned, born-digital library of religious and theological studies. The mission of the DTL is to provide its co-owning institutions with the highest quality digital resources in religious and theological studies at the lowest possible costs.

Use of the DTL's leased and purchased information resources is restricted to the DTL's co-owning institutions. Co-ownership is restricted to nonprofit graduate schools in religious and theological institutions without regard for religious affiliation. The DTL is an independently incorporated 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation. The DTL is governed by an executive committee elected by the co-owning institutions.

The Digital Theological Library was initiated by The Claremont School of Theology.


The Digital Theological Library welcomes inquiries from graduate schools in religious and theological studies. Co-ownership models are available for non-profit graduate schools. The DTL does not provide individual reference consultations.
