Finding Reference and Research Material in Yale Divinity Library

Two rooms in Yale Divinity Library are devoted to reference materials for various disciplines related to religion and theology. 

Trowbridge Reading Room: Located on the second (upper) floor. Trowbridge holds reference books for all studies, including biblical studies. Librarians have chosen for this room select Hebrew Bible and New Testament editions, commentaries, dictionaries, handbooks, concordances, and other books that they have found especially helpful for students.

It's a one-stop shop. Scan these shelves to find choice reference materials quickly.

Marvin H. Pope Reading Room: Located on the ground floor (basement). Turn left upon exiting the elevators. The entrance door is to your left as you walk into the stacks. 

Although smaller than the Trowbridge Reading Room, the Pope room likewise houses reference materials for Hebrew Bible and New Testament studies. Suited especially for students with some knowledge of ancient Greek and Hebrew. The Pope room houses commentaries, lexicons, dictionaries, concordances, Greek New Testaments, and Hebrew Bible editions.
