Global Digital Theological Library (GLDTL)

Note: Resources you access on the GLDTL are made available following required copyright restrictions only to current faculty members, institutional staff, and students. You are therefore required to request the access barcode/password by filling this form GLDTL Barcode Request Form

Here is how you get GLDTL access.

  • Go to the following website:
  • Use the search area (simple or advanced search) to look for a resource by author or book title
  • Select the desired resource and click “View eBook”
  • Some resources will have restricted access. If so, enter the barcode information designated by the school where it asks for it. Click the “Log in” button.
    • “Barcode” is the term GLDTL uses for what often is called a password.
    • The school receives the current barcode when they start using the GLDTL. That barcode will be replaced with another one occasionally. The ILC President’s Team will be inform the school of barcode changes when they occur.
  • The first time a user enters the GLDTL, it may ask them to register. If it does, a user should:
    • Enter your email address and preferred password information.
    • Read the conditions for use and click the “I have read and agree to the House Rules” box.
    • Then click the “Save Details” button.
  • If the resource is part of the Controlled Digital Lending (CDL), it will give you a password to use on the next screen.
    • Copy the password and click on the book you want to view from the list.
    • Insert the password where it is required.
    • Click the “Continue” button (if the button disappears before you can click it, click where it was located.
    • The CDL book should now appear for use.
  • You may now read the resource online, download it (if allowed), or add it to your GLDTL bookshelf.
  • From within this area, you may also search for additional resources without needing to re-enter the barcode again.
  • Sometimes, the resource you want to view is in another GLDTL section, a cooperative e-library, or a special online collection. Sometimes it may have restrictions on use (e.g., how long the text will be available). Other times, the text can still be viewed but is done through linked, different e-library software that requires additional learning for using them.
  • When you are finished, you may or may not need to log out from the GLDTL site. If there are no instructions requesting this, just close the browser or browser tab you have been using.
  • When you log out, it may take you to the VLeBooks log in site. Do not use this site to log into the GLDTL, instead, always use the main GLDTL webpage to log in. When you do, you may re-enter in one of two ways:
    • If you have not cleaned your browser history, it may let you back in without the need to log in after you again search for and select a resource to view.
    • However, if you have cleaned your browser history and then select a resource to view, you will likely again be taken to the screen where you will need to enter the required barcode. You should not need to go through the registration process once more.
  • They are regularly improving the GLDTL and the instructions above may change occasionally. Usually, these changes simplify the process; so, some steps above may become obsolete after your school starts using the GLDTL. The copyright restrictions and need to use a barcode for access will not change as they are required by certain publishers who are allowing their texts to be included in the GLDTL.
