Chaplaincy Theology Library

building picOur theology library based in the Chaplaincy is available for all to use. Any of the books may be borrowed for up to a term.

Subjects covered include biblical studies, theology, philosophy and world faiths. Search the catalogue below, or email the Chaplaincy for more information.

How to borrow our books....

If you're interested in borrowing any of our books it's quick and easy.  You don't even need a library card.  Simply fill out the index card in the front of the book you would like to borrow and place it in the card file in our Library.  When you've finished with the book simply return it to the Book Return box (also in the Library).

The book index cards are routinely checked, and all books must be returned by the end of each term.  Any books not returned will be charged to the most recent borrower.
