Shannon Library

General Information

The collection of the Shannon Library at St. Thomas More College is designed to support undergraduate classes taught at the College. As such, it is an excellent source for materials in many disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences, including English (especially Shakespeare, Chaucer and Victorian literature), History, Philosophy, Psychology, Religious Studies, Sociology, French (Canadiana), and Economics.  It also contains a number of Special Collections of scholarly and literary materials. A recent acquisition is the Nin Literary Collection, donated by Drs. Hinz and Teunissen.

The Shannon Library collection includes over 57,000 volumes and 150 journals and magazines; most of these materials are not duplicated in the University Library.

Students, faculty, staff, and members of the public are welcome to use the Shannon Library.  See the Services section for more information on borrowing policies. STM students work at the Information / Circulation Desk. If you need more assistance to access hard to find information, or require help with the tecnical aspects or a term paper, please ask to speak to the Librarian, Dr. Donna Brockmeyer, or request a meeting with her, including evenings and weekends.
