1 Welcome
Welcome to the Swanton Library.
The Swanton Library is the engine room of the College. This is where the great
thoughts and not so great thoughts of God’s people across the ages are held.
On the basis of the information here, lecturers prepare their notes, and students
prepare for exams and for ministry.
You can come here to think great thoughts yourself – or you can come here just to get
a bit of peace and quiet!

2 Snapshot
The Swanton Library is named after the Rev Dr Robert Swanton, who was the first
Principal of the re-organized Presbyterian College, from 1978 to 1981. On his death in
1992, he left a generous legacy to the College to help fund the Library and the work
of the Reformed Theological Review, which he helped to initiate. His portrait hangs
just inside the main door of the Library.
From small beginnings in 1975, the Library has grown rapidly towards a collection of
over 25,000 items. We intend upon maintaining that growth, and by the year 2020,
Library holdings should stand at around 36,000 items. The Library is always
expanding, always bursting at the seams.
Collection foci
The Library collection is strong in biblical studies, church history, and reformed
theology and practice.
You will find most of the substantial books currently offered by publishing houses
such as Banner of Truth, Presbyterian and Reformed, Evangelical Press and Christian
Focus.
There is a small but expanding Chinese and Korean Language section.

of the Library is the circulation computer. To borrow an item:
1. Scan your Library card. [Hold your Library card barcode in front of the scanner.
Your member account will open.]
2. Scan the item barcode. [Hold the barcode of the item you are borrowing in
front of the scanner, about 10-20cms from the reader.]
3. Press escape on the keyboard to exit your account
If you encounter any difficulties, just ask one of the Library staff.
Loan length

21
10 Returns
To return an item that you have borrowed, simply place it in the returns bin. This is
the big blue box near the front door of the Library.
You may otherwise choose to extend a loan. To do this, either log in to your account,
or speak to one of the Library staff.
You are requested to use common sense and courtesy when borrowing items that
will be in high demand for a course you are currently studying. If you know that an
item you are about to borrow is a required text for your course, please check with
Library staff whether it should be on permanent reserve. If the item is not on
permanent reserve, but you know your class mates will still need the item, please
return the item as soon as you have finished with it.
For items that you have used in the Library, but not borrowed, please re-shelve them
after use. If you are in a hurry, please place them on the returns trolley (and one of
the students rostered on duty will re-shelve your items for you).
22
11 Reserving items
If someone else has borrowed an item you need, you may reserve it. Upon being
returned, the item will be placed on the desk inside the door of the librarian's office,
for you to pick up. To check if your reserved item has come in, log in to your account.
To reserve an item
To reserve an item, search for the item on the library catalogue, select the 'Place hold'
option under the item details, and follow the prompts. You will need your library user
name and password.
Library user name: your name. Eg: John Calvin
Password: your library-car barcode. Eg: B1024xxxxxx
Placing a hold
It is not possible to reserve or place a hold on an item that is currently available for
loan. The Library operates on a first in, first served policy.

Resources

12 Journals & periodicals
The journals and periodicals collection has always been one of the great assets of the
College. There are more than 140 titles, including many of the world’s major
academic journals. If you happen to come across a journal title not held in the
Library, it is possible that it will be available to you through ATLA (see below).
Journals and periodicals are located in four places.
1. Select journals are placed on a stand by the librarian's office (eg Australian
Presbyterian, The Monthly Record).
2. New journals and periodicals are located in the far corner of the Library, past
the study desks.
3. Unbound periodicals and journals are on the shelves at the far end of the
Library, and are arranged by title from A-Z.
4. Bound periodicals are shelved along the walls of the Library, and are arranged
from A-Z.
All journals and periodicals are for use only in the Library. They may not be borrowed.
Please return items to the shelves when you have finished with them.
26
13 Ebsco serials (ATLA)
The Library subscribes to many theological journals, but how do you find the articles
you need? One essential tool is 'ATLA'. This is the premier online journal indexing
service for theological studies, and allows you to search almost all serious theological
journals around the world.
It also provides full text access to many of those journals, meaning you are not
confined by the (already extensive) hard-copy holdings of the Swanton Library.
There are two ways you can access ATLA: on-campus and off-campus.
On-campus access
On any computer logged on to the network at PTC, simply type the following
address into the web browser:
http://search.ebscohost.com
27
Off-campus access
If you wish to access ATLA off-campus, you will need to set up your personal account
('My Ebscohost'). To do this, you will need to be first on-campus.
1. At a computer logged on to the College network, type the following address
into the web browser:
http://search.ebscohost.com
2. Click 'Sign In' (top right hand side of the screen).
3. Click 'Create a new Account', and fill out the requisite details.
Thereafter, you will have access off-campus, at any internet-enabled computer in
Australia. Type http://search.ebscohost.com into your browser, and then type in
your chosen user name and password.
Your personal account will be active for 365 days.
Tips
 If you bookmark the Ebsco site, make sure you bookmark the address above –
not the address from when you are logged in.
28
 There are also Ebsco iPhone and Android apps. Details are on the Ebsco
website.
 Library users who are rarely on-site may request login details. Email

14 Bibliopedia
Bibliopedia is an online bibliographies wiki.
http://bibliopedia.ptcvic.org
Bibliographies correlate with the classes you take and the assignments you are given.
There are also some past exam papers available for download.
Some bibliographies have material for download (password protected). The
password is given only to PTC students, and available by request from the Library.
Bibliopedia is just like Wikipedia. YOU can edit it!
 If you worked hard on a bibliography, why not upload it here, or extend an
existing bibliography? Share your hard work!
 Instead of just copying an article for your own use, scan it to pdf, and upload
it yourself or email it to [email protected] for upload on
Bibliopedia.
30
15 Endnote
Endnote is a program that handles bibliographical data for essays. The program is
available at no cost to Australian College of Theology students, from the ACT
website:
http://www.actheology.edu.au/resources_EndNote.php
The Library catalogue has been converted to Endnote format, and is available for
download from one of the computers in the computer room.
31
16 Wifi
The College offers PTC students access to the wireless network, so you can access the
internet on your own laptop if you have a wireless card.
A password is required, available from the main administration office upon signing
the terms of use form.
Wifi is provided for academic research and for checking emails. Please do not use the
network for other personal use, such as downloading music, videos, and programs,
which slows down the speed for all other users.
32
The Photocopier
33
17 Photocopying
To use the photocopier, you need a copy card for the card reader unit, located to the
left of the copier. Cards are available from the main administration office, and come
in $3, $10 and $20 amounts. If the office is unattended, speak to the Library staff.
1. Insert your card into the slot on the right hand side of the card reader unit.
2. Make your copies. Operating instructions are displayed above the machine.
3. As you copy, the appropriate amount will be deducted from your card.
4. When you are finished, remove your card from the reader by pressing the
button marked 'escape' on the card reader unit.
Paper is stored in the cupboard next to the copier. Place A4 paper into tray one. Do
not use the other trays (mismatching paper and trays will jam the copier).
The Library Assistant’s Office is in the same room as the photocopier. All the items on
the desks are being catalogued. Please do not touch or remove them.
Cost
A4 copy – 10 cents
34
18 Scanning to hard disk

You do not need a copy card for this, and there is no charge for this feature.
1. Press the ‘scanner’ button on the photocopier (to the left of the LCD screen).
2. You will have an option on the LCD to select 'scanner' or 'Java Platform'. Select
'scanner'.
3. On the LCD, select ‘Store File’, then ‘Store Only’, and then ‘File Name’. Type in
a name you will recognize later, and press OK. (Alternatively, you may choose

4. Scan by placing the original on the glass and pressing the green ‘Start’
button.
5. Repeat step four to scan multiple pages to the one file.
6. When you have scanned all that you need, press the hash button (#). [Note: if

immediately, or right-click and select the option to save the file to the hard
drive on your computer.
6. Delete your file from the photocopier when you are finished. Select the checkbox above the file name, click the ‘delete’ icon at the top of the page, and
then click the ‘delete file’ button that comes up on the next page.
36
19 Scanning to email
You can use the photocopier to scan documents to your email address. You do not
need a copy card for this, and there is no charge for this facility.
1. Press the ‘scanner’ button on the photocopier (to the left of the LCD).
2. On the LCD screen, you will have a choice of 'scanner' and 'Java platform'.
Either will send emails, but Java gives more options, so select 'Java platform'.

4. Scan by placing the original on the glass and pressing the green ‘Start’
button.
5. Repeat step four to scan multiple pages to the one file.

you have scanned by using the document feeder, you do not need to press #.]
7. The file will be sent to your email address.
37
20 Printing
Computers connected to the internal college network can print to the Library
photocopier. You will need a copy card. These are available from the General Office,
in $3, $10 and $20 amounts. If the Office is unattended, speak to the Library staff.
You can print from the computers in the computer room. Otherwise, you can use
your own laptop, if you are connected to the College network.
Installing Smart Print Central
To install the printer, 'Smart Print Central', on your laptop:
1. Find the option on your computer to add a printer. Eg: open your 'Control
Panel', then open the 'Printers' option, and find the 'Add a printer' option.
2. Select 'network printer' (rather than a local printer), then 'connect to this
printer' (rather than 'browse for a printer'), and then type in the name of the
printer: \\PTCOFFICEPC\Smart Print Central
3. The printer driver should then install automatically.
If you are using Ubuntu, the printer URI is smb://WORKGROUP/PTCOFFICEPC/Smart
%20Print%20Central, and if you are asked for the printer type, select Ricoh MP3010.
38
Using Smart Print Central
First, select the print command within the program you are using, to bring up the
print dialog box. Select the printer, ‘Smart Print Central’, and click 'print'.
After you have printed from your computer, the file will be sent to the computer to
the right of the photocopier – the 'Print Release Station'.
1. Go to the Print Release Station.
2. Insert your copy card into the slot on the right hand side of the card reader
unit. Note: the card reader unit for the Print Release Station is to the RIGHT of
the photocopier (not to be confused with the unit to the left of the copier).
3. On the computer screen, you should see your file listed. Select your file, and
click 'print'. If you file is not there, click ‘refresh’.
4. A notice will pop up advising you of the cost of printing. If you wish to
proceed, select 'yes'. The file will now be sent through to the photocopier.
5. When you are finished, remove your card from the reader by pressing the
'escape' button on the card reader unit.

Other information
41
21 Student roster
Most students will be rostered on Library duty for one week each semester. This
involves putting items which are on the re-shelving trolley back to their appropriate
places in the Library.
Please:
 ensure that your duty team clears the trolley on at least a daily basis.
 re-shelve items with all due diligence. Remember that one item misplaced on
the shelf can lead to that item being in effect 'lost', and can cause great
frustration to other people who want to use the item.
 try not to return too many items at once, as fatigue will heighten the
likelihood of incorrect re-shelving.
42
22 Interlibrary loans
The Swanton Library can in certain circumstances arrange for an interlibrary book
loan, or obtain a pdf of a journal article not available in the Library or through ATLA,
with the following guidelines.
1. The request must come from a lecturer or a current post-graduate student.
2. The applicant must first have attempted to access the resource at other
Melbourne libraries (eg the Dalton McCaughey Library).
3. The item must be vital to a significant area of research.
Up to two requests per semester may be made without cost, but thereafter, the
Library will pass on the cost to the applicant (typically between $20-$30).
Access to other libraries
The main theological libraries in Melbourne are open to public use. However, PTC
students do not have borrowing rights.
43
23 Donations
Donations are always welcome.
Monetary donations are tax deductible. Cheques should be made out to the
Presbyterian Theological College Library Fund. Credit card details can be provided
via the slip downloadable from the website.
Donations of theological resources are also welcome. The Librarians will sort through
your gift, and items will either be added to the collection, or will be distributed to
students.
