Services to the general public

As part of the Webster-Eden Library System, Webster University Library mission is to serve the research needs of the students, faculty, and staff of Webster University and Eden Theological Seminary. Where possible, certain privileges may be extended to members of the general public as a community service or as a result of cooperative arrangements with other libraries.

Visiting the library

Visitors who wish to do research in either library are welcome. Most of the library's resources are available for use on the premises except in cases where priority must be given to Webster or Eden classes or where contractual agreements bar us from allowing use by outside users.

Borrowing materials from the libraries

Webster University Library participates in the MOBIUS Consortium and the InfoPass cooperative borrowing system along with many school, public, and academic libraries in the area. Check with your local library first to determine how to request materials from us.

The Library also makes borrowing cards available to certain members of the general public and alumni of Webster and Eden. There may be an annual or semi-annual fee involved, and certain limitations do apply.

For more information, contact:

  • Contact the 1st Floor Service Desk at 314-968-6952 for more information.

Use of the audio-visual collection

A general public user may use the audio-visual collection in the library only. You will be required to leave your photo I.D. card at the 1st floor Service Desk. Check-out is not available.
