Facilities and Special Attraction1. The Library
In any place of learning the library is one of the most important assets. We aim to introduce our students to the extensive resources in Christian literature and to help them to become researchers. Our library has an extensive selection of more than 60,000 volumes and is continually growing. We have concentrated on building up good reference materials and resources for our courses in Biblical studies, Theology and Ethics, History of Christianity, Religion, Missiology, Christian Ministry & Communication and Church music. The library contains a number of periodicals and it also subscribes to the Online ATLA (American Theological Library Association) Religion Database. Besides these, Students may supplement the resources of our library by using other library collections, including Mizoram University, conveniently located in and around the city. Library is open from 9:30 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. and from 12:40 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on all working days. The reading room is kept open with the help of student librarians from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. during weekdays. On Saturday the Library is open up to 1:00 p.m. The Library has five sections: the first a referencecum-reading room, the second for computer research, the third for stacks and checking out of books, the fourth for magazines and periodicals, and the fifth for Archives (particularly for the purpose of research in the field of Christianity in Mizoram) and Calvin Study Centre library.
