Felix Goodson Library

Mission Statement
The mission of the Felix Goodson Library Interlibrary Loan Service is to support the informational and educational needs of the Williams Baptist University students, faculty, and staff by locating and borrowing materials that are not available in the Felix Goodson Library collection. Additionally, the FGL shares resources with other libraries. We are able to provide this service through an organized network of libraries across the country.
