A major component in the Seminary’s educational program is the 200,000-volume Krauth Memorial Library, home of one of the finest scholarly collections of any Lutheran institution in America. Archives of five of the Seminary’s supporting synods are housed on the library’s shelves. A professional staff is available for assistance and consultation.

During the academic year, the library is open weekdays and evenings as well as weekends. Summer hours are weekdays only.

The library is a member of LYRASIS/OCLC, a computer network serving all types of libraries in the U.S. and abroad. The system provides access to ownership and cataloging data for some 138 million titles held by some 71,000 participating institutions worldwide, including the Library of Congress.

The library’s integrated computer system, "ECCO," provides access to most of the holdings in the library.
