WoodcutWelcome to the portal to Bethany Special Collections Online!

This page serves as the direct link to the Bethany Special Collections Online, hosted by PALNI (the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana [see www.palni.edu]). Online you will find selected high-quality images of title pages and other pages of interest chosen from parts of Bethany's Special Collections, including numerous samples of beautifully hand-illustrated woodcuts, such as displayed here.

We celebrate the conservation project that enabled us to preserve many of the works making up our valuable collection, and which also made this initial Online offering available. We are grateful to the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation for their invaluable support in these efforts. In the future, we may include some of the project narrative, as well as some before-and-after photos of the conservation work done, as well as some detail about the online portion of the collection.

In the meantime, here is the direct link to the Bethany Special Collections Online Enjoy!

Kimberly Koczan-Flory

KimberlyNot long ago, I was uncertain if I would be a Bethany student. My calling to ministry holds a strong commitment to the church, but has always extended beyond church doors. I am passionate about the ways God is moving within congregations, but committed also to those who seek God outside of the institutional structures. One of the primary places. I feel most fully engaged in life-giving ministry is as a spiritual director. Several years ago I completed a certification program in spiritual direction and feel deeply honored to listen with individuals, groups, and organizations about how ordinary life meets with our extraordinary God.
