The Redemptorist Community Library is based in the Formation House in Kew, Melbourne, and serves the community who live there. The community is made up of priests, academics, students, and the staff who support their mission.
The Library contains a huge variety of literature from text books to support the students' study, to research material used by the academics. It is a general theological library with particular strengths in systematic theology, biblical studies, moral theology and ethics, and sociology of religion. There is a large section on Redemptorist history and mission.
The library also includes a collection of poetry, novels and political biographies.
The library is not open to the public but books may be borrowed on interlibrary loan or by arrangement with the librarian.
The Social Justice Library is a collection that has been built up over many years by Fr Bruce Duncan CSsR.
It is housed in the Study Centre of Yarra Theological Union so that students undertaking Social Justice Units for their degree programme have access to the best resources.
The collection focuses on the history and theory of social justice, Catholic social teaching and movements, the environment, economic development, war and peace.
The library is currently open on Wednesdays, or by appointment with the librarian.
