The John Smyth Library is the research library of IBTS and is located on the first floor of the Baptist House, above the church hall. Our collection of over 40,000 print volumes are all available in open stacks. We use the Dewey Decimal System, so the library lends itself very well to topical browsing. There are study spaces, guest computers and Wi-Fi throughout.
We also welcome scholars and students from other traditions to come and visit our library. Borrowing rights can be extended free of charge to all members of the public with a proven research interest.
Please note: Due to limited staffing, the library is only open by arrangement. Please get in touch with the office to arrange your visit.
