Today many libraries are better described as information centers or media centers. While the DTL employs some new information technologies and new media, it remains, above all, a traditional library: a place for books and for the rigorous acquisition of learning. All our collections, services, and facilities are meant to foster serious and recollected study in the service of the Gospel.
国产偷拍视频The Dominican Theological Library houses an extensive collection of theological and philosophical works. Shaped by its Dominican identity, the collection is especially strong in the scholastic tradition, particularly in the works of Saint Thomas Aquinas and his commentators. The Library possesses nearly all of Aquinas’ published works, including the critical editions distributed by the Leonine Commission. Many valuable Thomistic commentaries, such as those of Cajetan, are also available within the Library.
The Library subscribes to two hundred current periodicals and journals, covering topics in theology, philosophy, literature, and history. Back issues from over four hundred journals are available, either as bound volumes or on microform. The Library also owns rare books, incunabula, and manuscripts.

Periodically the library creates a new mini exhibition showcasing various books centered around a specific theme. The exhibit can be found in the display cases on the main floor, to the right of the recent periodicals.
