The mission of the Heritage Library is to provide an ever-expanding, diverse catalogue of scholarly resources and to provide facilities conducive to study and research for students, faculty and alumni.

The library occupies 6,000 well-lit square feet on the lower level of the Academic Building. It is open to faculty, staff, students, and the community during our indicated times (see below). Library facilities include study carrels, worktables, and reference, periodical and group/study rooms.

The library’s collection of over 35,000 items includes books, periodicals, tapes, videos, CDs, and music scores. Our catalogue is accessible online. Special collections include the Heritage Special Collection and the Bunyan Collection. In addition to 80 current hard copy journal subscriptions, Heritage faculty and students have access to e-resources including eBooks and various databases (see below).
