Pitts Theology Library

In light of the ongoing pandemic, Pitts is operating under its new request and retrieval model. This means that patrons do not have physical access to the library space, but all Emory patrons (faculty, students, and staff) can make requests for circulating books through discoverE. Requested items will be pulled by Pitts staff, held at the circulation desk, and patrons can come and pick up their materials at the entrance to the library. For current library service hours, please visit the Library Hours page.
