Charles C. Myers Library

The Charles C. Myers Library and Wartburg Theological Seminary's Reu Memorial Library form a partnership to serve the needs of students. These separate collections are integrated through a single online library automation system. The combined resources include 182,000 volumes at the University of Dubuque and 92,000 volumes at Wartburg. The two libraries subscribe to 630 current print periodical subscriptions. In addition, the Myers Library has access to over 20,500 online periodicals and many online reference works. Students have access to library resources, including the online catalog and the major academic databases in religion, both on and off-campus.

The collections at the two institutions are complementary. Specialties at the Charles C. Myers Library include materials of the Reformed and United Methodist traditions, Native American history, philosophy, and world religions. In addition, the Wendt Collection focuses on character and ethics. The Reu Memorial Library is particularly strong in Lutheran studies, Latin American liberation theology, feminist theology, and theology and literature.

The two institutions are located less than one mile from each other. A daily courier service between UD and Wartburg facilitates loans between libraries. Other libraries in the area with relevant resources include Carnegie-Stout Public Library, Clarke College, Emmaus Bible College, and Loras College.
