You can view the catalogue for the Diocesan Library as an Excel spreadsheet by following this link:

Using the catalogue

There are over 8,000 resources in the Diocesan Library catalogue.

Books and resources are listed by category.  For a list of our categories, see the first sheet - Book Classes - of the spreadsheet. The second sheet is a schematic of the library.

You can search the catalogue - the second sheet, Library Catalogue - of the spreadsheet by:

  • Using the "Find" function in Excel and entering, for example, a key part of the book's title
  • Using the "Filter" keys to view books by a specific author, in a specific category
  • Scrolling through the spreadsheet to view the categories of interest to you

The Loan Status column shows whether the book is likely to be I (in) or L (out on loan).

The Diocesan Library catalogue is usually updated once a week.

Books can be borrowed for up to 3 months, and for longer by prior arrangement with the librarian. Items are booked out in a register, please include contact details in case we need to chase you.

For details of when the library is open and how to contact the librarian, go to Opening Times.

Should you have, or know of personal libraries that are no longer required which could be donated to the Diocesan Library, please contact us, and we can arrange collection.
