Christine Love-Rodgers, Academic Liaison Librarian for Divinity, University of Edinburgh (New College Librarian)

I look after  buying books and journals for Divinity at New College Library, electronic journal and book subscriptions,  New College Library planning,  policy and projects (including Special Collections projects), and helping staff and students to use the Library.

I’m blogging about New College Library,  especially bringing forgotten rare books into the light and making links between these historic New College Library collections and the current activities of the School of Divinity.  All done with the help of my colleagues in the Helpdesk and Cataloguing teams here at New College Library.

  1. I would like to purchase the DVD of “How an Olympic champion became a missionary” on Eric Liddell’s story.
    How can I do this?

  2. Dear Christine,

    I have been trying to get a copy of Mak, Siu Fai’s dissertation named: “A contemporary Christian response to ancestor practice in China”. It was a doctoral dissertation submitted to the New College, The Centre for the Study of Christianity in the Non-Western World in 2006. I went to the U of E’s library website and could not locate it. Can you help? Thanks!


  3. Hi Christine, it is heartening to see the blog on New College library collection. It is a good way to reach out to the wider academic community, of which I belong. As an alumni of New College (PhD graduate, 2010), how can I benefit from its resources? I was hoping to go to Edinburgh and do some research for a book for two weeks at New College library and the main library. How could I access the library, as well as use the internet facilities in the library?
    Thank you

  4. Hi Christine,
    I am currently researching for an essay on the development of the Mound and the architecture of New College in particular. Are there any good sources that you could recommend?
    Thank you!

    • Dear Julia,
      Thank you for getting in touch. I recommend Watt, Hugh ; New College, Edinburgh : a centenary history /
      Edinburgh : Oliver and Boyd, 1946. There are several copies at New College Library. We also hold some copies of maps and plans of New College in our archives, please get in touch if you would like to look at these.
      With best wishes,
      Christine Love-Rodgers
