Course Reserves

One copy of each book required for all classes offered by Eternity Bible college is set aside for students to check out and use for a one-hour interval. If you are a local student you may make an appointment to access this material on campus. For some titles, there are additional copies in our Main collection that can be checked out for two weeks. Check the Library for more information.

For online students (and for social distancing): We are working diligently towards building complete online access to our entire course reserves collection, starting with the high demand required books for Fall 2020. In the meantime, any portion of a book in our catalog can be scanned and added to our database as a pdf. Check the Library page for more information.

Here is a list of electronic versions (full-text) currently available to you. 

This list will be updated as electronic titles become available. Please note that the table is searchable, and continues for multiple pages.
