The Saskatoon Theological Union’s (STU) library collections consist of more than 100,000 volumes and 200 journal subscriptions. Through a joint collection development policy, each library collects in several specialized subject areas while also maintaining a general collection of books and periodicals to meet the needs of courses offered by its particular college.
St. Andrew’s College Library has 37,000 volumes and receives 90 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 a strong collection in the areas of liberation theology, feminist theology and current social issues.

Horizon College’s A C Schindel Library is comprised of 21,000 volumes and receives 31 periodicals. Areas of concentration include Reformation theology (particularly the writings of John Wesley) and the history and tradition of Pentecostalism.

Access to the University of Saskatchewan Library is also 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.
