The library catalog includes all materials in the main stacks, including several niche collections (Korean Collection, New Books, Reference, etc.). It also includes most of the materials in the Ancient Biblical Manuscript Center (ABMC), as well as materials located in Special Collections, namely the Tune Collection, Folios (oversized books), and various Rare Books. Two nearby institutes (the Center for Process Studies and the Disciples Seminary Foundation) also have specialized collections with records stored in our catalog.

Archival materials, on the other hand, are not yet listed in the catalog. These materials include the historical papers of Kirby Page, Bishop James C. Baker, Mary E. Moxcey, and others, as well as the Charles W. Hartshorne Archive. CST institutional records and memorabilia are also still in need of cataloging. The Archives of the California-Pacific Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church also lack corresponding records in the CST library catalog. If you would like to help create a digital repository that provides access to these rare and important materials, please consider donating to the library or helping us put together an application for grant funding.
