BGST Experience – BGST Resources


Using The BGST Library

BGST has an extensive collection of resources. In addition to the library, which holds over 40,000 items, students and library members can gain access to a growing collection of e-books and hundreds of online journal articles.

We are thankful to God for this wonderful collection of resource material. We hope to serve the library needs of the BGST family and the Christian community at large effectively.
