NEW! Electronic Book Collection for Biblical Studies

The Library has recently added 397 electronic books (e-books) to the approximately 5,300 NetLibrary titles already available to Hope International University students, faculty and staff. These new e-books focus specifically on Biblical Studies. We were able to purchase these e-books through a joint purchase with other Christian colleges and universities that belong to the Christian Library Consortium which is part of the Association of Christian Librarians.

There are two ways to limit your search for e-books in the NetLibrary collection. One way is to use netlibrary as one of your search terms in the OPAC. The other way is to:
  1. Go to
  2. Click Research Databases
  3. Scroll down to the Electronic Books section and click NetLibrary
  4. Login to the Library using your Hope ID and your Library password (the first 3 letters of your first name and the first 3 letters of your last name)
  5. Have fun searching!
In order to take advantage of the note taking function of NetLibrary, you will need to either:

  • Login to your existing NetLibrary account (top left corner), OR ...
  • Create a free NetLibrary account (top right corner)
To see a list of the 397 Biblical Studies titles in NetLibrary, please contact Terri Bogan.

NOTE: The Darling Library offers over 25,000 e-books from several other e-publishers besides NetLibrary. To limit your OPAC search to only e-books (on any subject, regardless of publisher), make one of your search terms electronic resource as a phrase.
