With more than 610,000 volumes, Pitts is among the premier theology libraries in North America and one of the most comprehensive in the world. The library’s new home includes high-density shelving, a dedicated special collections area, space for small-group study and breakout rooms for larger groups. It also features an 80-seat lecture hall and 1,000 square feet of adjacent exhibit space.

Phase II of the new Candler building is adjacent to the Rita Anne Rollins Building on Dickey Drive. An Emory or other photo I.D. is required for entry into the library.
