From the Vault Blog

Twice a month, the Archives features a unique document, photograph, film or other item from the collections on our blog, From the Vault. These items offer a glimpse into the work of the Archives, as well the lives of men and women involved in all aspects of Christian service—music and art, medical work, education, evangelism, religious broadcasting, prison ministry, Bible translation, and much more—both in North America and around the world. More content from the collections can also be found on From the Vault's two predecessors, the WCBGC Archives' Bulletin Board and Special Collections and College Archives' ReCollections

Contributions to Digital Archives and Exhibits

In addition to building its own digital exhibits, Buswell Library Archives & Special Collections welcomes the opportunity to make its collections more accessible to users around the globe through partnership with other memory institutions by contributing to a variety of digital archives and exhibits created and maintained by other institutions. To date,  Archives & Special Collections is participating in three separate digital archives initiatives at The Moody Center, Livingstone Online, and the Chinese Christian Posters exhibit at The Center for Global Christianity & Mission at Boston University. 

Please contact the Archives for more information about our approach to digital collaborations with other institutions.

Staff Presentations

One cherished benefit of working in an archives is hands-on experience with the collections. At Archives & Special Collections, one way we make this firsthand knowledge available to scholars, students, and the greater community is through staff presentations on a wide variety of topics, including Billy Graham, R. A. Torrey, Donald McGavran, and the sinking of the Zamzam, among others.
