CBTS Library Ebooks
Beginning in 2012, the CBTS Library began actively adding electronic books to its collections. While the majority of the library collection is still in print, electronic books are becoming the preferred format for acquisition of books.
Additionally, the focus of our electronic books currently is toward resources serving the academic needs of the community. This means that the available titles are primarily from traditional academic publishers (e.g., Oxford University Press, Ashgate Press, Routledge Press, etc.). Resources oriented toward a pastoral/clergy audience (e.g., titles published by Augsburg Fortress, Eerdmans, or Westminster John Knox Press) are still primarily collected in print.
Recent Additions to the E-book Collection
