While works are underway at our Parkville campus, our Whitley community can access resources from our temporary library at St. Paschal. We now have a wonderful space for students to explore, with an area at the back of the library for private study.
Our strong and comprehensive collection of books and journals supporting all the foundational and specialist areas of theological studies offered through Whitley College, have been moved from The Geoffrey Blackburn Library to our new location for 2022.
While the location is different, the library, together with the University of Divinity Library Hub continues to provide students with access to a huge range of print and electronic resources, as well as the expert assistance of library staff, who are theologically trained.
Special strengths of the library include its collections in biblical studies, mission and the Australian context, as well as the Baptist Historical Collection. A portion of the collection is housed offsite, however, items can be requested for retrieval.
