Dover Memorial Library

The Dover Memorial Library is an active and integral part of the University’s academic program. The Library’s collections, available on open stacks, support all areas of the curriculum and include 172,000 print books, nearly 12,000 bound periodicals, and many other materials such as DVDs, CDs, and computer files. The Library has access to over 600,000 eBooks, nearly 150,000 journal titles in 150+ electronic databases, and is a selective depository for federal government documents.

In addition to its collections, the Library provides numerous services to reinforce and enhance the instructional process for both on-and off-campus students. The University Archives features the Fay Webb Gardner Papers, the Kings Mountain Baptist Association records, and University and local church ephemera. The Digital Commons holds digitized copies of archival materials as well as faculty and student scholarship.

Professional librarians are available for individual and group instruction. Several opportunities for research instruction are available: live chat, email, phone, or face-to-face appointment. Interlibrary loan, audiovisual, and production (lamination, color copies, posters, etc.) services are available. The Library’s homepage, www.gardner-webb.edu/library, provides access to our online catalog and databases as well as information about the Library facility, resources, services, and policies. Off-campus students will be prompted for their WebbConnect username and password in order to access the Library’s subscription databases.
