Collection strengths

Collection strenghts:
The 60,000 volume collection is centred on reformational and foundational studies, philosophy, philosophy of the disciplines, biblical studies, and the Calvinian tradition (e.g. Groen van Prinsterer, Kuyper, Dooyeweerd, Vollenhoven, and Rookmaaker). It includes collections of Herman Dooyeweerd, M.C. Smit, Bernard Zylstra and George Vandervelde. There are Dutch materials, dissertations from the Free University in Amsterdam, student papers, theses and dissertations, and faculty works. The library subscribes to specialised journals such as Faith and Philosophy, Fides et Historia, and La revue reformée. The Faith & Learning collection is focused on materials which explore the relationship of Christian faith and intellectual scholarship.
