The Wesley Biblical Seminary Library provides academic resources and research support to students and faculty in order to contribute to the overall goals of the curriculum. Through the Library’s electronic databases, students and faculty have access to over 500 journals, over 26,000 e-books, and approximately 2 million academic dissertations and theses.
With over 17,000 volumes in print, the Library provides faculty and students with a wide variety of resources for biblical, theological, and philosophical studies, in addition to key materials supporting spiritual formation and practical ministry. Within the print collection, the Wesley Collection includes over 1,000 rare books, holiness classics, and institutional works. To expand access even more, the Library participates in Reciprocal Borrowing and Interlibrary Loan agreements with other libraries across North America.
On campus, students can study in the Reference Room, which is open during the Seminary’s operating business hours and whenever classes are in session. The Study Space beside the stacks offers students a quiet environment for individual or collaborative work. A printer is available for student use.
