The John Richard Allison Library Archives and Special Collections
The John Richard Allison Library holds the joint collection of Regent College and Carey Theological College, and is one of the major theological libraries in western Canada. The archival unit of the library is the official repository that acquires, processes, preserves, and makes accessible for use the institutional records of Regent College and Carey Theological College. In addition, the archival unit acquires and encourages donations from its Board of Governors, Presidents, faculty/staff members, students, alumnae and other private/personal papers and manuscripts of individuals that pertain to
the research interests of the institutions. An example is the professional records of Dr. Stanley Grenz which were generously donated to the archival unit in 2010.
The Allison Library has approximately 150,000 items (books, microfiche, microfilms, video tapes, CDs, DVDs, and audio tapes). Other collection of rare and early printed works comprise largely of Anglican, Puritan and Evangelical works, including the works of authors such as Richard Baxter (1615-1691), John Bunyan (1628-1688), and George Whitefield (1714-1770). Several archival materials are also being processed for use.
