About the Pacific Bible College Library

The Pacific Bible College Library offers more than 3,500 books and a number of electronic databases as learning resources to help you in your studies. Access to the library catalog and electronic resources is available in Populi, our college management system.

New Addition: Pacific Bible College has recently purchased over 10,000 physical books from Eternity Bible College, a sister college that is transitioning its library completely online. Thanks to this new addition, Pacific Bible College will have the premier theological library in southern Oregon. The new collection will be available when we move into our new campus.

How to Check out a Book

Books can easily be checked out by students using the Library Kiosk. The Kiosk is a self-serve computer located in the library and is equipped to search the catalog, locate, and check out / return books. The Kiosk can also be used by students for research and printing needs.

Digital Collections

Pacific Bible College gives its students and instructors access to multiple digital collections including EBSCO and Gale databases. EBSCO contains an eBook collection with hundreds of thousands of books. Gale contains a combination of eBooks, journal articles, and opposing viewpoints on current events.
