St. Andrew’s College Library is one of the Saskatoon Theological Union member libraries that have combined resources to operate as a unified system.
The purpose of the STU libraries is to provide and promote library and information resources in support of the missions and goals of the colleges that form the STU. The libraries confirm their commitment to the importance of information literacy in all library plans, policies, and activities.
St. Andrew’s College Library has 37,000 volumes and receives 30-plus periodicals. It has extensive holdings on the Reformed churches and traditions and on Canadian church history with special emphasis on the prairie context. It has developed a particularly strong collection in the areas of liberation theology, feminist theology and current social issues.
The other STU member libraries are Horizon College's A.C. Schindel Library, the Otto Olson Memorial Library of the Lutheran Theological Seminary and the H.E. Sellers Library of the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad, which is housed at St. Andrew’s College. Together the collections consist of more than 100,000 monographs and 200 journal subscriptions.
Through a joint collection development policy, each library collects in several specialized subject areas, embracing a wide range of theological topics. Each also maintains a general collection of books and periodicals to meet the needs of courses offered by its college. All currently registered STU students, faculty, and staff as well as members of the public are eligible to borrow material from any STU library.
Access to the University of Saskatchewan Library is available to STU students, faculty, and staff. The U of S Library has a strong theological collection within its 3,500,000 volumes, plus general and subject-specific databases. STU students, faculty and staff who are travelling may also request in-person access to the library collections of almost all Canadian academic libraries and many academic libraries in the United States.
