MidAmerica Nazarene University and Nazarene Bible College (NBC) announced today that they are partnering to offer MNU’s library services to NBC students. Beginning June 1, NBC students will be able to access online databases and support for other services.
NBC is in the process of phasing out its on-site education and will offer its programs exclusively online. The administration of the college is relocating from Colorado Springs, Colorado, to the Church of the Nazarene Global Ministry Center in Lenexa, Kansas.
According to MNU Library Director Bruce Flanders, services to NBC students will primarily be delivered in an online environment via phone, email, fax, interactive chat, webinar, and related communications methods. NBC students will have access to reference and research assistance, and an exclusive set of online databases and e-book collections, funded by NBC. Books will also be lent to students. In addition, NBC is adding a core collection of more than 4,000 books from its library to Mabee Library.
“We are excited about this partnership, and the opportunity to serve the informational and research needs of NBC’s more than 1,100 students,” Flanders said.
Located in the Mabee Learning Commons, the library features physical books and reference materials, nearly 30 research databases, the Institutional Repository, the Center for Games & Learning and the Marge Smith Archives.
