Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology


DSPT offers the special qualities of a small school combined with the library resources of a major university. Our students have full access to the GTU, UC Berkeley and Santa Clara University libraries. 


The GTU owns one of the largest theological collections in the United States - nearly 700,000 items in size - The Flora Lamson Hewlett Library. An easy, safe walk from campus, this library provides our students and faculty with a wealth of resources and a unique learning environment. GRACE , the library's catalog, lists most of its extensive holdings. The GTU Archives, with 285 collections, provide primary research materials on religion in the West and Pacific Rim, with interest in ecumenism, inter-religious activity, ethnic plurality, women in religion, and new religious movements.



The UC Berkeley Libraries are a short walk away and the Santa Clara University Library is located on the Peninsula.
