We offer both in-house and online resources to aid students in completing course assignments. We have materials that include books, audiovisual, microform, and vertical file resources.
To encourage our new students to start using these tools right away, we have incorporated a Library Research Tools Seminar into the BL 501 (Hermeneutics) & BC 499 (Research / Writing) curriculums. This seminar helps students develop proficiency in information research techniques.
