Good Shepherd College is a Catholic theological college located in Ponsonby, Auckland, New Zealand, and founded in 1998. It arose from the relocation to Auckland of Holy Cross College (the National Catholic Seminary for the training of secular priests) in 1998, and of Mount St Mary’s College, Green meadows (the seminary, formerly located near Napier, for the training of priests of the Marist order) in 1992. The resources of the seminaries were pooled to set up Good Shepherd College for the formal academic philosophic and theological training of priests and others in New Zealand. The New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference and the Society of Mary established a charitable trust to own and govern the new college and the trust decided to enter into an association with the Catholic Institute of Sydney to provide theological education for the students of the new college. Good Shepherd College - Te Hepara Pai is registered with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority as a Private Training Establishment under the Education Act 1989, and its subsequent amendments. This ensures ensures that GSC is able to provide a sound and stable learning environment. GSC is the off-shore campus of the Catholic Institute of Sydney. The library has extensive holdings in the ecclesiastical sciences, theology, philosophy, scripture, history, the humanities and literature. There are about 100,000 items and the collection reflects the Catholic focus of the college. It caters for both undergraduate and post-graduate education. Each year it receives Interloan requests from all parts of New Zealand for articles in theological journals and periodicals which are a significant part of its resources. The library is open throughout the working week.
