Southern Baptist Historical Library

With more than 30,000 books and 17,000 reels of microfilm containing 13 million pages of Baptist historical materials, the Southern Baptist Historical Library and Archives serves as the denominations central research facility.

Appointed by the Southern Baptist Convention, the library also has more than 71,000 annuals of Baptist associations and conventions and an environmentally controlled rare book room featuring a collection of rare Bibles dating from the early 1600s.

We hope you enjoy our work.
