From 2021 the RTC Library will primarily offer students and staff access to eBooks through the Digital Theological Library (DTL). Key holdings of the DTL including available resources from unit guide bibliographies; and commentaries collected in print by the RTC will be added to the RTC catalogue to assist with searches.

In addition to holdings on the DTL, the RTC also owns over 1,350 individual eBook titles (including some not available through the DTL) which are listed on the RTC library catalogue and accessible across three different eBook platforms (Wheelers, Proquest and EBSCO).

For help in accessing the E-book collection please contact the RTC Librarian. If you are not a current student or staff member of the RTC you may wish to contact the librarian about possible access.

The DTL offers over 600,000+ eBooks which includes a number of resources used within RTC units; and commentary sets collected in print by the RTC library. Examples of commentary sets held include selections from The Bible Speaks today, Tyndale,  Baker Exegetical, Story of God, NIV Application, Word Biblical and the New International Commentaries on the Old and New Testaments.
