About the Harold Lindsell Library

The Harold Lindsell Library serves the Gordon-Conwell Charlotte campus, but it is open for on-site use by the general public as well.

The library is designed to support the training of theological students from an evangelical perspective. Collecting areas include philosophy of religion, biblical studies, church history, theology, pastoral ministry, counseling, world missions, and evangelism. Special attention is given to the evangelical tradition and to materials relating to Christianity in the American South.

Special collections at Harold Lindsell Library include:

The Robert C. Cooley Collection in Biblical Archaeology and Early Christianity. Named in honor of the deceased son of President Emeritus Robert E. Cooley, this collection contains materials relating to archaeological expeditions in the Holy Land, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and early Christian history and backgrounds.

The SIM Collection in World Missions and Intercultural Studies houses over 3,500 volumes from SIM, an international missions agency whose offices are located adjacent to the Gordon-Conwell Charlotte campus.
