The Canterbury Dictionary of Hymnology

January 23rd, 2015 in Uncategorized

The library is proud to announce that we now have access to The Canterbury Dictionary of Hymnology.  According to the dictionary’s website, “It is an essential reference resource for scholars of global hymnody, with information on the hymns of many countries and languages, and a strong emphasis on the historical as well as the contemporary. It will be of interest to literary scholars, musicians, church historians, and theologians, and a delight for those who love the hymn as an art form.”  The dictionary can be found here or on the E-Reference section of the STH Library website.

We appreciate your assistance.

Moving of the Collection
