IBTS

Baptist Heritage Library

The International Baptist Theological Study Centre (IBTS) has initiated the Baptist Heritage Library which the centre intends to turn into a multilingual corpus of Baptist texts available free online.  

The Baptist Heritage Library (BHL) is a repository for Baptist organisations that will serve as a digital open access archive of the identity, mission and practice for our communities. BHL was founded in 2020, so it is still in its early stages. At this time the focus is on European material; however, the hope is to eventually include any relevant language and other areas.

Digital Open Access Archive

The Baptist Heritage Library (BHL) is a repository for Baptist organizations that will serve as a digital open access archive of the identity, mission and practice for our communities. BHL was founded in 2020, so it is still in its early stages. At this time the focus is on European material; however, the hope is to eventually include any relevant language and other areas.

The BHL will be hosted on archive.org as they offer free hosting in perpetuity, which means no maintenance costs for the institutions that participate in the project. A helpful feature of the BHL is the full-text search, which will be available for not only individual documents but also the entire library collection.
