Library & Resources

The John W. Graham Library serves ߲Ƶ’s undergraduate Arts & Science students, the theology students and faculty of ߲Ƶ and Wycliffe College, Trinity and Wycliffe alumni, and the greater University of Toronto and Anglican Church communities who seek our resources.

The Graham Library’s collection of over 200,000 volumes is strongest in the humanities and in the theological disciplines (Anglican church history, theology and liturgics; Biblical studies; philosophy; and religious studies) supporting the programs of the ߲Ƶ Faculty of Divinity and Wycliffe College. Special collections relevant to the Faculty of Divinity program include the Strachan Collection, given by the founder of the College, Bishop John Strachan, the S.P.C.K. Collection, given in 1828 as the foundational theological collection of the University of King’s College, which later became the University of Toronto; and Wycliffe College’s Book of Common Prayer Collection.

As part of the large and diverse , the Graham Library augments resources in direct support of the missions of Trinity and Wycliffe Colleges.

Reference librarians are available to support your research:

  • Theology – due to the retirement of Thomas Power, we are in process to conduct the search for a new theology librarian; please watch this space for announcement!

NEW: TST students at Trinity and Wycliffe Colleges can now access Graham InfoExpress, a premium time-sensitive document delivery service.

We have extensive theological and Anglican research guides and resources that were compiled by our now-retired theology librarian. The Graham Library offers a number of services, including research consultations, faculty research and course support, instruction in research and information-seeking strategies, group study spaces and computer workstations. Theology degree students can apply for a study carrel with associated locker.
