Welcome to the Library

We are here to help you with learning how to be critical thinkers in understanding what sort of information you need for your research projects and how to find, evaluate, and cite that information. Thinking christianly means more than just reading the Bible, it is integrating all sorts of knowledge into a comprehensive and cohesive understanding of God’s story in the world.

Make an appointment for Library Resources

If you need to access books resources at the library just click this link and find a time slot in the google calendar that is convenient for you –  Ideally this would be with 24-hours notice.

Research Inquiry

If you need help finding books/documents/articles/general information on a particular topic, just click this link and fill out the jotform which will then be emailed to the librarian. The librarian will follow-up with you within 48hours.

Eternity Library Catalog

The library on campus at Eternity comprises over 12,000 print resources, weighing heavily in Bible, Doctrinal Theology, and Practical Theology. Click the link above to access the Eternity Library Catalog. If you need assistance with your search please submit a research inquiry.

Course Reserves

Eternity has set aside one print copy of every title that is required for the curriculum offered. Students may check out the print copy while on campus – or – the e-book copy online. We are currently building our electronic collection – click the link above to see the list of e-books.

Other resources to consider:

In addition to the resources made available through the Eternity Library all students are highly encouraged to take full advantage of  their local library. Depending on where you are located you will generally find multiple branches of both city and county public libraries offering a seeming infinite number of print and electronic resources.

**And even during ‘stay-at-home’ orders libraries that are closed have an option for registering for an e-card if you need one: LAPL is one example.

As an enrolled college student you might also consider reaching out to a college/university campus near you. Some colleges offer borrowing privileges to the local community. Your Librarian here at EBC would be willing to forge the connection for you if you have need.

World Cat connects you to the collections and services of more than 10,000 libraries worldwide. The great thing about this particular tool is you can search for an item that seems obscure and then request an ILL (inter-library-loan) to have it sent to a library near you. Essentially you search all of these 10K libraries in one search bar.

Book Lists

I’m learning to love people better, not only through the things I’m learning in my classes, but through the amazing community of students and teachers who model it for me.
