Trinity Anglican Seminary

Mission

The Library’s mission is to serve the Lord by providing faculty, students, and staff with rich, varied information resources, competent bibliographic instruction, and quiet, contemplative space; this, in turn, supports Trinity’s calling to give theological education, spiritual nurture, and practical training for those He has called to ministry and Christian leadership.

The Library is a focal point for study and research on campus. Numerous study carrels equipped with network connections surround two spacious, bright floors. The Trinity Library is located in the Library and Academic Building.

The Library maintains a collection of 80,000 items and over 100 periodical subscriptions, with emphasis in Biblical studies and Anglican theology.

The Trinity Library is an institutional member of the American Theological Library Association, an institutional member of the Association of British Theological and Philosophical Libraries, an independent member of the Online Computer Library Center, and an institutional member of the Christian Library Consortium.

Trinity Anglican Seminary

Collection

The Library’s collection of books and periodicals is based on the principle of stewardship with the goal of glorifying Jesus Christ and serving His Kingdom.

 

Trinity Library:

  • provides a repository where the Bible, as God’s Word written, remains the primary source for library activities and basis for library resources;
  • develops and makes available a rich collection of theological resources with an emphasis on Biblical Studies and Anglican Theology to support the evangelical and educational mission of Trinity; and,
  • establishes a secure archive for older, historically significant materials that chronicle the Episcopal Renewal Movement and the history of Trinity Anglican Seminary.

 

The Library continues to add and maintain historical and contemporary works to implement these guidelines, including print monographs, serials, and periodicals, as well as information in electronic and audio-visual formats.

The Marjorie Stanway Collection

The Marjorie Stanway Collection of African Bibles, Prayer Books, and Hymnals was established in honor of its namesake, the wife of Trinity’s first Dean and President, Alf Stanway. The Marjorie Stanway Room houses the collection, one of the largest of its kind.
