The Claremont School of Theology Library has three levels.

The Lower Level has books from BX to Z (according to Library of Congress classification). It also has all periodicals (magazines and journals), both recent and bound. It has some seating and desks for quiet study. Special Collections sit on the northeast corner of this floor, but their materials are available by request only. The Cataloging, Acquisitions, and Digital Services offices are in the northwest corner of this floor. Restrooms are only available on this level and can be found along its east side.

The Main/Entrance Level has Reference Books, Folios, Videos, Recent Books (published in the last year or two), and Korean Books along the south side. The offices of the Dean, Circulation Librarian, and Reference Librarian are on this level along the east side of the building. PhD student study carrels are in the large room on the west side. Scattered in different areas are some seating, desks, fitbikes, and computer terminals for catalog searching. The computer lab is on north side of this level, but is only accessible from its own entrance outside the building.

The Upper Level has Library of Congress classified books from A to BV. It also has two rooms that can be reserved (the Trever Room and the Small Seminar Room), an open study space with a couple fitbikes (the Moore Center), a reading magnifier, and lots of chair and desk space for quiet study. Check the FAQ for more information on reserving.
