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, was 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 daily. The library’s goal is to provide a comfortable place to do research for our students.

Open Book

Destiny is the online cataloging system that our library uses.  Here you can find every item that is in our library system.  If you sign up, many more options are available such as requesting an item to be held for you, sending book suggestions to classmates, tracking what you read, and keeping track of what items are due and when.


If you are confused as to how to work our online catalog, this tutorial will give you a short lesson on how Destiny works.


These databases provide online periodicals, biographies, journal entries, eBooks, and much more.  These articles contain information for college students, college faculty and staff, academy students, as well as academy teachers. More databases can be accessed by logging into your Populi account.
