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.
Everyone is welcome to use our materials within the library. Those with one of the following library cards may borrow materials:
- U of T students, staff and faculty with a valid TCard or library card
- Trinity extramural borrowing card (Trinity and Wycliffe alumni, Anglican Church of Canada clergy are eligible. See How can I get a library card? or the Guide to Library Services for Divinity Alumni/ae for more details)
The Graham Library is part of the U of T Libraries system. All of our holdings can be searched online using the U of T Libraries Catalogue page.
