Accessing the collections

The Library's collection of over 200,000 volumes is strongest in the humanities - English, philosophy, and classics, for example; in the theological disciplines supporting the programs of the Trinity College Faculty of Divinity and Wycliffe College; and in history, political science, economics and other subjects relevant to Trinity's interdisciplinary undergraduate programs - International Relations; Ethics, Society and Law; and Immunology. As part of the large and diverse University of Toronto library system, the Graham Library augments resources available elsewhere in ways consonant with the missions of Trinity and Wycliffe Colleges.
