The Antrim Presbytery Library is a significant collection of publications from the 16th-18th centuries. As the first 'corporate' library in Belfast, it is important for reflecting the interests and concerns of a provincial, 18th century society of local intellectuals and religious ministers. Key subject strengths focus on a variety of religious topics, including theology and religious, non-conformist debate. Classical subjects are also strongly featured.
