DoMN Library website goes live

The DoMN Library project marks a significant milestone this month with the launch of the new website and catalogue, which is now live on the Diocesan website.

The Formation & Education Team at Pastoral Ministries is excited to unveil the site which combines the collections of the Catholic School Office, Religious Education and Spirituality Services, the St Laurence Centre and the Sisters of St Joseph’s Dilley Library. This extensive range of resources for teaching, study and personal faith formation is now available to all across the diocese.

Online publications including La Croix and The Tablet connect DoMN Library members to the latest perspectives on compelling issues of importance to Catholics in Australia and around the world.  Likewise, access to the extensive eBook Religion Collection provides titles ranging from introductory texts for undergraduate coursework to more complex and detailed works for advanced students and scholars in the Religion discipline. The eBooks included in the subscription cover diverse worldwide religions and explore popular areas of study such as the social, cultural, and historical impacts of religion.

For in-depth reading and research the Religion & Philosophy Collection database provides DoMN Library member with extensive coverage of such topics as world religions, major denominations, biblical studies, religious history, epistemology, political philosophy, philosophy of language, moral philosophy and the history of philosophy. With more than 300 full text journals, the Religion & Philosophy Collection is an essential tool for researchers and students of theology and philosophical studies.

While the DoMN Library catalogue can be searched anonymously, registration is necessary for access to member privileges such as: borrowing books, audio visual resources and kits, for access to the eBook collection, periodicals and magazines and for access to the databases. Registration is an extremely simple process via the registration link on the library homepage.  Once registered, an email confirming logon details makes members set to benefit from the array of resources – both physical and electronic. All physical resources will be made available for collection at the library desk in the Diocesan Offices reception area at 841 Hunter Street, Newcastle West, or by arrangement.  All resources should be returned to the Diocesan Offices as well.  

To help navigate the sites many features, handy “How to” videos, with step-by-step instruction to many frequently asked questions (FAQ’s) are provided at the click of a mouse. There is also a Book Club which all are welcome to join.

The link to the DoMN Library can be found on the Diocesan Website or you can go directly to the Library Website and Catalogue.
