Welcome to the A.R. Reddin Memorial Library page!
Southeastern Baptist College exists to glorify God by providing quality post-secondary education from a Biblical worldview in a Christian atmosphere, thereby developing Christian growth in students and preparing them for service in the Kingdom of God. The college attempts to maintain a high level of academic excellence, insuring that the work of its students will be valuable in the eyes of the academic and professional world.
Within this context, the primary goal of the A.R. Reddin Memorial Library is to provide library services that support the college’s curriculum and to fulfill the information needs of the students, faculty, staff, and administration through the building and maintaining of a vital collection of library materials and resources.
The Southeastern Baptist College library was named the A.R. Reddin Memorial Library in July 1976, after the former college president. The present library building was built and first occupied in 1993. Along with resource materials belonging to Southeastern, the A.R. Reddin Memorial Library houses the Baptist Missionary Association of Mississippi History and Archives Room.
The campus library is a managed/closed stacks library. Materials may be used on campus or checked out through an appointment with the librarian only. Please contact the librarian via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Students and faculty members are welcome to make appointments to use the library for course work/research. Please contact the Librarian to make an appointment.
Summer Hours: Officially closed, but appointments can be made (by students and faculty) with the librarian for access to the library.
Materials may be checked out for a two-week period and may be renewed, provided no fine is due; there is no limit to how many books a student may check out. The following policy pertains to check-out time periods and overdue fines:
*Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays ARE included when computing fines.
*Please return all library materials to the administration building front desk.
