Brigham Young University-Idaho is an association affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As such, one of the purposes of the university is to develop disciples of Jesus Christ who strive to be leaders in their homes, communities, and in the Church.1 This mission is accomplished by providing a quality education in many fields of interest, preparing students to become lifelong learners, maintaining a wholesome environment, and by building testimonies of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In order to assist the building of testimonies, Special Collections provides students with access to a Scriptural Collection. This collection houses multiple copies of Sacred Works, including various editions of the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, as well as the Pearl of Great Price. We are also home to 19 different languages of the Book of Mormon.
Although this collection is similar in its mission to the Mormon History Collection, the Scripture Collection differs in that it is specifically dedicated to copies of the Sacred Works and histories of the Bible.
