The purpose of this study was to determine how Christian school library collections have been impacted by the information age. The focus was threefold: Do collection development policies include e-resources? Should they? How is a biblical worldview exhibited in the selection of e-resources? How much of the budget should be allocated to e-resources? The twenty-two participants of this study were librarians from Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) accredited schools who were willing to participate. The instrument used for this study was a survey with primarily open-ended questions. This study shows that many Christian school libraries do not consider e-resources to be part of their library holdings and those that do vary in the way they address e-resources in their collection development policies, ensure the presence of a biblical worldview in the resources, and budget for those e-resources.
