Shelves of books in the old Woodstock Reading Room.

The Woodstock Theological Library is a religious studies, theological, biblical studies, and special collections library. Located on the lower level of Georgetown University's Lauinger Library, Woodstock began its life as the library for Woodstock College (1869-1974), a Jesuit seminary outside of Baltimore. It is one of the premier Catholic libraries in America, with a rare bible and theological collection that rivals any such library.

In addition to its circulating, reference, and rare book collections, Woodstock is also home to the Woodstock College Archives, the John Courtney Murray Collection, the Diaries of Teilhard de Chardin, and the personal papers of a number of other Jesuits. Woodstock is open to Georgetown students, faculty, and outside scholars.
