Explore The John E. Whitaker Library

The John Whitaker Library was named after Chancellor John E. Whitaker. His faithful years as President of Union Bible College and his passion for learning were clearly demonstrated during his years at the college. Therefore, the library is named in his honor.  The library has been updated and new additions are added regularly. The library’s goal is to provide a comfortable place to do research for our students.

Open Book

Destiny is the online cataloging system the library uses.  Here you can find every physical item that the library holds.  Creating an account provides more options such as requesting an item to be held for you, tracking what you've read, and keeping track of what items are due and when.
