One of the privileges of being a student at Trinity is access to the college library - a major theological resource that lies at the heart of the college's programme of preparation for ministry.
We have a large collection over 48,600 books and audio-visual materials. We subscribe to 70 periodicals and have access to many other books and periodicals via the British Library document supply service and the Association of British Theological and Philosophical libraries (ABTAPL).
There is an extensive reference collection and a small but growing number of titles of wider interest (fiction, literary appreciation, art, music, architecture and the sciences).
Free WI-FI access is available to all students and staff.
The library is open to Trinity students seven days a week, 7.00am - 9.30 pm.
The Librarian, Su Brown, is available Mon-Friday, 9.00am - 4.00pm.
Students and staff of Trinity College are also permitted access to the libraries at the Bristol Baptist College and the University of Bristol library's electronic and online resources, including JSTOR, the ATLA Religion Database and selected online journals.
We offer a restricted service to people who are studying theology on Diocesan courses or at other UK colleges and universities. For further details and current membership fees please contact the librarian.
Opening hours for External members: Monday-Friday, 9.00am-5.00pm. Please note, the library is not open in the evenings, Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays.
