Burleigh Collection

The Burleigh Collection was established by the Baptist Churches of South Australia as part of its commitment to Theological Education. Following the closure of Burleigh College (previously the Baptist Theological College) in 2006, the collection was generously made available to Tabor to continue the support of Theological Education. In appreciation, and in order to provide easy access to the Burleigh Collection, those accredited by the Baptist Churches of SA are eligible for free membership of the Tabor library.

Graeme Clark Research Institute (GCRI) Collection

The GCRI Collection consists of over 200 volumes of the International Society of Science and Religion Library.

Teacher Resource (TRC) Collection

The TRC collection contains a wide variety of classroom support materials and resources for lesson preparation and teaching. These resources are primarily for the use of students enrolled in teaching practicum units.

Thesis Collection

The Thesis Collection holds archival copies of all Masters by Research and PhD theses completed at Tabor. Increasingly, theses are available in full-text online via the Library Catalogue and Trove. Hard-copy theses are available for in-library use only.
