Formed in 1997, the Adelaide Theological Library (ATL) supports the teaching and research of the University of Divinity and the Uniting College for Leadership & Theology.

The library holds an ecumenical collection based on Uniting Church, Anglican and Catholic traditions, and was developed from the combined collections of Parkin-Wesley College, St. Francis Xavier Seminary, St. Barnabas’ Theological College and the Society of the Sacred Mission (Adelaide)

The Adelaide Theological Library catalogue is integrated with the University of Divinity catalogue. ATL is open to the public, however borrowing from the collection may incur an annual fee. For more information on becoming a Community Member please visit our Membership page.


The Adelaide Theological Library seeks to support people in their search for theological understanding by providing a professional and accessible service in a welcoming environment and by developing an ecumenical collection that is relevant for the Adelaide College of Divinity.
