United Methodist Collection

The VWU United Methodist Collection, located within the Library, functions as a repository for publications relating to the history and workings of the United Methodist Church (to include Methodism in general, early Methodism, American Methodism, Virginia Conference, Baltimore Conference, Evangelical United Brethren Church [E. U. B.], etc.*).

The collection is in addition to other United Methodist publications that may be found in the library’s reference section, or shelved with the catalogued materials throughout the general library inventory.

Local collections

Most archival or special collections materials are non-circulating, which means that they cannot be checked out from their home library.
