Група Семінаристей ознайомились із працею Семінарійної бібліотеки
At the beginning of the fall semester of St. Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Theological Seminary, the first- and second-year students of the full time academic program accompanied their teacher Pani Nelia, on an introductory tour of the St. Sophia Seminary Library. The Library tour was conducted by the Librarian, Dobrodijka Oksana Pasakas, and assisted by long-time Library assistant Pani Liudmila Bezsoniw. The Library tour introduced the students to the holdings of our Library: where they would be able to find theological books, Ukrainian fiction, history, music, the reference section, calendars and almanacs, periodicals, books and materials pertaining to the Holodomor (man-made Famine in Ukraine in 1932-33), commemorative books from parishes and Ukrainian-American organizations, and much more. During the tour, the students were shown the online catalog, which is updated on a weekly basis with new donations that have come to the Library.
Resources at our St. Sophia Seminary Library play a vital role in the education of the students at the Seminary. Our circulating library continually updates its holdings to include books utilized by the students for the classes, term papers, and additional reading material “for fun”. Near the end of the tour, students began to wander off and settling in stacks that were of interest to them: some flipped through old almanacs and calendars of the UOC of USA, another grabbed his first book to check out of the Library, and another began opening up boxes of liturgical sheet music.
If you would like to support the Library at the Seminary, you may do so by making a financial donation or by donating books and other resources. For more information, contact the Library by calling 732-356-0090, ext. 120 or by emailing Dobrodijka Oksana at firstname.lastname@example.org.
