Our Libraries

The Sydney College of Divinity (SCD) Library consists of eleven individual libraries, which are spread across the campuses of the SCD Member Institutions and Korean School of Theology. All campus libraries are branches of the Sydney College of Divinity Library.

The libraries have extensive learning resources and research-trained staff to deliver the Sydney College of Divinity programs of study for which they are accredited and support the concept of research-led teaching in Higher Education. Most libraries are institutional members of ALIA/LIANZA and ANZTLA.

The library branches operate in accordance with the Sydney College of Divinity Library Policy and Regulations. Though, each library has its own operating procedures and borrowing regulations, it is in accordance with the SCD requirements.  Library users are advised to contact the individual libraries for opening hours, and other key regulations including borrowing, renewal, loan period, and late penalties as they may vary across the libraries.
