General Information


The Crawford Library honors the memory of Dr. Cecil Clement Crawford, who, with Mrs. Helen Crawford, came to Dallas Christian College in August 1967. Dr. Crawford was a scholar, educator, preacher, writer and popular professor during his years at DCC. Before his death in January 1976, Dr. Crawford donated his personal library to the College.

Located on the first floor of the Administration Building, the library contains a collection of 35,000 print volumes, 17,000 electronic books, 250 current print periodicals, and 3,000 full-text electronic journals. In addition, the faculty and students have access to over 60 online databases. Computers for student use, with Internet access, are located in the Library.  The library has wireless Internet access for students’ laptops.

The Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) can be accessed online at http://library.dallas.edu.

Memberships are with the American Library Association, AMIGOS, OCLC, and the Christian Library Consortium. These memberships allow DCC students to borrow books, journals, and materials from thousands of libraries throughout the world.
