Students registered in the Toronto School of Theology have access to all TST libraries as well as all the libraries at the University of Toronto. The University of Toronto Library system is the largest academic library in Canada. In addition to the millions of books, the library system provides access to thousands of full-text electronic journals, and hundreds of online databases and resources. TST Librarians offer research assistance and instruction in the use of online resources.

The majority of theological materials are located in the TST Libraries and the Robarts Library (the central humanities and social sciences library). All of these materials can be found on the University of Toronto Library's online catalogue:
