A Note from the Director of Library Services

The John L. Patten Library provides professors and students of Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary with the information resources necessary for teaching and research. In order to accomplish this goal, the library staff selects, maintains, and accesses print, audio, video, electronic, and other information materials inside the library. The library staff enables professors and students to locate these information materials on their own and is prepared to assist as needed. The library staff also accesses information resources from outside the library through its interlibrary loan services and through its catalog of online resources. If you have any information needs or questions about the library, please ask one of our staff members for assistance. We are here to serve you.
