The Lima Campus Library is the home of the hymnal collection that supports the Dictionary of North American Hymnology (, a longstanding project of The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada. The collection has over 900 volumes, the earliest of which was published in 1815. It represents dozens of Christian denominations, from Adventist to Unitarian, in addition to items from the Jewish and Buddhist faiths. This collection is noncirculating, but is open to researchers.
