Welcome to the Divinity subject guide - your guide to using the library resources, services and facilities for your subject.
The Library regularly arranges trials to new resources, including databases. It's always worthwhile checking the list of current trials as there could be something available for a short period that is just what you are looking for.
A major Estates project means that we must move the New College Library collections and services.
What this means for you
• New College Library (NCL) will close at 5.00 pm on Friday 20st December 2019, and re-open at David Hume Tower (DHT) on 13th January 2020, providing access to General Collections.
• Archive material and some Special Collections (selected in consultation with the School of Divinity) will be available at the Centre for Research Collections at the Main Library in George Square. Remaining Special Collections will be unavailable until the Library returns to New College in Summer 2021.
• The School of Divinity are planning to make the NCL Reserve Collection available in the Semple’s Close Wing of New College from 13th January 2020.
