The Wiggin Library has been a cornerstone of Meadville Lombard since its beginning in 1844. Comprising over 40,000 books and periodicals, the Wiggin Library is one of the foremost resources for the study of liberal religion. We amplify this historical legacy through technology that allows us to work collaboratively with the greater world and to share our unique collection and expertise. The Library subscribes to a host of electronic resources that provide access to thousands of academic journals.
We have developed innovative ways to make our material available to our geographically dispersed users. Wiggin Library provides resources not only to students and faculty, but also to ministers, religious educators, other religious professionals, and members of the broader UU community. Our complete library catalog is openly accessible to search online and most of our books can be shipped directly to users. Research help and answers to reference questions are also available at a distance with a librarian via e-mail, phone, and even video chat. No matter where UUs are, the Wiggin Library is just a few clicks away.
