Mission Statement

As the resource, reference, and research arm of New Saint Andrews College, Tyndale Library exists to support the academic and scholarly programs of the school. The means to accomplish this include hard copy holdings, both visual and audio materials, and electronic access to important collections of books, magazines, and journals.

Tyndale Library seeks to provide depth as well as breadth. Our primary goal is to provide our patrons with excellence that is distinctively tailored to the mission of the college. The library’s purpose is to support the mission of the College in preparing college students to take their place as citizens of the Kingdom of God and serve the practical needs of the church congregation. We have set forth the following goals:

• A commitment to “functional excellence in facilities, resources, and the use of technologies to the end that the mission of the library is enhanced.
• The creation of a comprehensive reference collection to support a wide spectrum of patron needs
• Core periodicals supplemented by access to a minimum of 100 electronic periodicals as well as superior indexing for both print and electronic periodicals.
• A rich monograph collection of 50,000 volumes distributed across the liberal arts curriculum with particular emphasis in biblical studies, theology, literature, history, natural philosophy, and music.
• An acknowledgement that the holdings of Tyndale Library must reflect a wide spectrum of human opinion including that hostile to our cause and our God. However, all such scholarship must be evaluated by the Chief Holding of the library, the Word of God.
• Cooperative agreements with other libraries and information resources to provide interlibrary loans and reciprocal borrowing privileges.
• An adequate staff committed to joyful, excellent service and trained to provide accurate assistance to patrons.
• A posture that is sensitive to the changing role of libraries in an age of emerging technologies.
