Collection Strengths

The New College location stamp in the Union Card Catalogue in Robarts Library is no longer reliable as new holdings have not been entered and some older material has been sent to Sigmund Samuel Library. All New College materials should be available through the Library Catalogue.

Two study rooms available to be booked and restricted to U of T students, staff, and faculty with a valid UTORid.  More information on Booking a Group Study Room go to
