MISSOURI – Vyrsity announced the development of the Agathon Research Library under the leadership of Mary Odom, MALS, CAE. Odom will head up the development of the resource which will be centrally housed on Vyrsity’s campus in Independence, Missouri. The Agathon Research Library is intended to serve Vyrsity Learners and students of other AgathonEDU subsidiary schools, including Colorado Biblical University. Initially, two collections will be represented by the Agathon Research Library, the Vyrsity collection in Independence, Missouri and the Earl Radmacher Library on Colorado Biblical University’s campus in Fort Morgan, Colorado. Other private collections on loan will add to the Agathon Research Library, as well as a robust digital collection especially of documents and resources that complement the academic programs of each participating school. The Agathon Research Library is intended to be a benefit not only to Vyrsity and Colorado Biblical University, but also to other participating schools.
