Library and Learning

NAGLE LIBRARY

A place to learn

Committed to academic excellence, St John’s College provides spaces to learn, to study in peace and to collaborate with other students in group workspaces.

The heart of these academic spaces is the Nagle Library, named for our benefactor, Justice John Nagle (1914 – 2009). Fully refurbished in 2018, the Library holds the College’s collection of heritage and general resources and provides study spaces zoned for different learning styles.

ACCESS

The Library is available to current St John’s College students and senior residents and is open 24 hours during semester. Online access is available via our catalogue, Aquila.

College alumni, researchers and other interested parties are invited to contact the Librarian for access.
