Library and Archives

The College Library is housed in beautiful historic buildings and contains significant collections of early and rare books, manuscripts, special collections and literary archives, spanning the ninth to the twentieth centuries, from Aelfric to Spike Milligan. Good teaching collections support most undergraduate studies, and the Library aims to provide a comfortable, efficient and friendly study support service to all members of College, as well as guests and researchers. Most of its resources can be found using the Oxford University catalogue, SOLO.

A separate College Archive holds extensive records dating back to the 12th century.
