This is just a brief overview, you might also want to look at our Libguide for Theology and Religious Studies

Printed materials



Since 2015-16 we have started obtaining Part IIB dissertations. Read more information.


The Library has about 3,000 pamphlets, primarily material published in the twentieth century, with only a couple of items added after 2000. Unless copyright laws prevent us, we might be able to provide you with a digital scan of short pamphlet - this is otherwise dependent on levels of staffing and other service needs. Please ask us if you would like us to do so.


There are in excess of 70 printed, periodical titles (with 5 current titles).

Electronic resources

Almost all our electronic resources (databases, ejournals and ebooks) are available campus-wide, to any current member of the University. More information on how to find eresources.

Research resources

The Divinity Library aims to respond to the research needs of the members of the Faculty of Divinty. An overview of research resources in Cambridge (also going beyond the Divinity Library) is available. In particular we welcome suggestions for books. If you are missing access to an ejournal or a database, please contact us.
