Welcome to Kenneth Scott Latourette Library. With a primary focus of international development, the library has many resources for culture studies, some of which are not commonly found in other libraries. Some of these resources are password-protected, and available only to WCIU faculty, staff, and students. We hope our resources will be of help to you.

Latourette Library houses the following special collections of books:

  • Donald A. McGavran

  • Ralph D. Winter

  • South Asia

  • William Carey Library Publications

  • William Carey International University Press

  • William Carey International University Student Theses and Dissertations

All special collections are for in-library use only.
