The History of Cincinnati Bible College Library.
Howard, Patricia
Very little has been written about Bible college libraries in the United States, even though they have been in existence since the early 1880s. This study presents the history of Cincinnati Bible College Library, tracing its development from its inception in 1928 over the years and showing how it has followed the mission statement of its parent institution. Factors examined include: (1) changes in the college mission and how these are reflected in changes in library services, collection development, policies, and its statement of goals; and (2) the college's accreditation process and resulting changes in goals, staff size, services, and structures. Historical data is gathered from interviews and the college and library archives collection, consisting of college catalogs, newsletters, reports from board meetings, and letters to the presidents. Changes have occurred over the years in the college and library location and structure, student population, library staff, and services, but not in the overriding goals and objectives as dictated by the college and by the Accrediting Association of Bible Colleges. Appendices contain a campus map, photos of the library and library staff, a chart of total volumes from 1975-1986, and a floor plan of the library. (Contains 25 references.) (Author/SWC)
