How to Access

Most holdings are listed in the library catalogue, but this library does not participate in intercampus delivery. Place an interlibrary loan request instead.


The mandate of the library is to support all of the academic programs offered by the Seminary to fulfill its mission of preparing candidates for (archdiocesan or) ministerial priesthood in the Roman Catholic tradition. It also supports the training of the laity for leadership in other ministries.  St Augustine’s, geographically, is the closest theological library to the U of T’s Scarborough campus.
