Collection Development

The collections of the Bethel University Libraries are built with the primary goal of supporting the missions of the Seminary and University Libraries and Bethel's curricula. Secondarily, we collect materials that provide general education, enrichment and enjoyment. Materials particular to the individual needs of faculty can be acquired through interlibrary loan.

The Libraries support Academic Freedom as outlined in the Bethel Faculty Handbook. Additionally, we support the Library Bill of Rights of the American Library Association.
