Undergrad Programs & Majors

Paul-Nystrom Library

One of the best theological libraries in the Sacramento area, the Paul Nystrom Library of William Jessup University houses hundreds of thousands of books, periodicals, journals, CDs, DVDs, audio and videotapes in our physical and electronic collections. We were one of the first academic libraries to migrate to the Evergreen open-source library catalog. Collection strengths include Biblical Studies, Counseling Psychology, and the Restoration Movement.

Whether you are looking for reference help, deciding which place to begin your research, or simply looking for a book or article recommendation, the library staff wants to help. No matter your need, the goal of the library staff is to shorten the length of time it takes you to find what you are looking for, while helping to foster a love for learning and information.
