A limited number of individual study carrels are located in the library. These may be reserved for a 4-month period by individuals officially affiliated with the Bethel community, faculty on sabbatical, Ph.D. students, and adjunct faculty. Generally, master’s students will not be given a carrel without some other mitigating circumstance. Contact the Seminary Reference Librarian for more information.
