Jehovah Jireh Bible Institute of Higher Learning
Online Library Resource Center 


About Our Center: 

The Jehovah Jireh Bible Institute of Higher Learning/dba formerly (Great Commission Bible College & Theological Seminary) students, faculty, and board members decided to formulate a list and utilize online cyberspace library resource and reference centers in 2005.  The school moved from continuing to build physical libraries at the school’s main campus and satellite campuses because of the reduction in paper, the rise of paper cost, the economic impact of adding rooms for more book volume space, and when books become outdated, obsolete and needs to be archived it would cause a maintenance financial hardship and waste as well. The advancement of the internet and technology allowed the Great Commission and JJBI to collect and build information about free online bookstores, book companies, online Christian or religious resource centers that house hundreds of thousands of books and study materials from present writers and authors, and past scholars. When students need to find added resources they can go online at any time and find the supplementary materials and books required for their coursework at any time. JJBIHL train and orientate students on how to utilize their public libraries, other public colleges, seminaries and universities library resource centers for their support in their studies and for ongoing academic support in the community where they live. Students are orientated on how they can use the other public postsecondary schools computers and media center resources for lifelong learning. Our school’s staff and academic team are constantly researching the web on a daily basis referring students and faculty to sites to assist them with the best professional and educational experience possible. Although most books and educational resources are online, JJBIHL plans to reestablish and build a small library resource center for students who attend class onsite for their learning. Below you will find some sites listed for our library resource center, although JJBI HL staff and students use many more.
