Miller Library

Overview

McPherson College’s Miller Library houses a collection of print materials with special collections, including an archive of periodicals, an automotive technology collection featuring many rare and hard-to-find items pertaining to vintage and classic cars, and material documenting the history of the Church of the Brethren and of McPherson College.

Students visiting the library will also find private and group study spaces, ample computer lab space, a music collection, and a collection of feature films on DVD. We offer comprehensive access to numerous online journal databases and participate in an interlibrary loan program, making it possible for us to get just about anything you might need to complete that research project!
