The Lima Campus Library is also the home of the Dictionary of North American Hymnology (DNAH) hymnal collection.
The 1000-volume collection in Lima represents the broad range of congregational song indexed in Hymnary.org. Dating from 1815 to the present, the collection consists at least 20 languages, including Chinese, Croatian, Dakota, French, German, Greek, Hausa, Hawaiian, Hebrew, Hungarian, Igbo, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Tamil, Vietnamese, Welsh, and Yoruba; three faiths (Christian, Jewish, and Buddhist); and at least three styles of musical notation. Anyone may use this collection by making an appointment with the Library Director. For details, see the DNAH page.
