Special Collections

The library houses some "special collections": the Noel Brooks Collection, the Pentecostal Research Collection (PRC), and the University's historical archive.

Pentecostal Research Collection (PRC)

Mission: The purpose of the Pentecostal Research Collection  (PRC) on the campus of Southwestern Christian University is to establish and maintain a collection of curriculum related and significant academic level works on the history, biography, theology, doctrines and outreach of the major Holiness-Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements.  Special emphasis will be on  resources related to the history of the Pentecostal Holiness Church (IPHC) and Southwestern Christian University (and all its previous institutions).
