The Leon Morris Library plays an important role in the academic and community life of Ridley. Its quality reflects many years of sustained investment by the college and supporters in this vital resource. In July 2019 we moved into our refurbished and extended library building.
The library is staffed by three Librarians and several assistants who provide reference and other assistance to library users. The collection is constantly being enhanced, with the primary aim being to provide for the information needs of theological students and staff. It currently consists of some 47,000 books, 135 current journal subscriptions and access to thousands of electronic books (ebooks) and several online databases. There are computers, internet/Wifi access, study spaces and a scanner available for use.
The strength of the library collection lies in the area of biblical studies, and there are also important holdings in theology, ethics, church history and practical ministry. Smaller sections include Australian society and church history, missions and patristics.
