Mennonite Historical Library, Goshen College

The Mennonite Historical Library, located on the third floor of the Goshen College Library, contains numerous books in Amharic from the Anabaptist Meserete Kristos Church. Many of these books are uncataloged or have limited cataloging. AMBS Elkhart students may visit Mennonite Historical Library in person or request that materials be sent to AMBS for use in the AMBS Library.
