St Paschal Library (Franciscan OFM)


This is the Library of the Franciscan Province of the Holy Spirit and is the main resource centre for Franciscan studies within Australia. Its comprehensive collection of Catholic theological material is also available to faculty and students from the University of Divinity. The collection of about 40,000 monographs and 150 journal titles is strong in patristic and medieval studies, ancient languages, contemporary theology and art history. In addition to the friars’ own library resources, St Paschal Library houses two additional collections: in 1988 the Missionaries of the Divine Word (SVD) placed their missiology collection (currently 3274 books) into St Paschal Library; and in 1995 the YTU library collection (currently 3578 books) was similarly integrated. Because one of the aims of these three organisations is the education of Catholic clergy and laity, this amalgamation of library resources enriches the collection for all users.
