Library Information

The St. Augustine's Seminary Library supports all academic programs offered by the Seminary. Its collection of more than 43,000 volumes is strong in Roman Catholic theology with an emphasis on resources for ministry. There are subscriptions to approximately 170 periodicals and newspapers and a small collection of DVDs, videos, and audiocassettes.

Most of the collection, except the non-print resources, is searchable through the Catalogue of the University of Toronto Libraries (UTL): www.library.utoronto.ca. This union catalogue shows the holdings of the over 30 libraries that comprise the UTL.

Students and faculty at the Seminary have the same access to and borrowing privileges in these libraries as their U of T counterparts. They also have both onsite and offsite access to the many electronic resources licensed by the UTL. The U of T student card, known as the T-Card, serves as the library card for the entire library system.

The St. Augustine’s Seminary Library collection meets most of the needs of those taking Seminary courses. However, the five libraries connected with TST Colleges and the Robarts Library contain the main theological collection on the St. George campus which can be used by St. Augustine’s students.

The staff at St. Augustine’s Seminary Library provide reference and research assistance; consultations can be booked to learn how to use any library resource. Contact the library at library@sastoronto.org.

Please note that outstanding library fines may result in the withholding of final transcripts.
