The library staff is working on options to make our collections accessible remotely. For this reason, if you need to consult any of St John’s Special Collections holdings, please email the College Librarian detailing as precisely as possible what you would like to consult (providing manuscript number(s) and/or shelfmark(s) if possible) and by when you would like to see the item(s).

For visits to the library without research interests, including group visits, please see Exhibitions & Library Visits.

Image Requests

Digital images for private study and publications may be ordered by completing the Images Order form. You will then be advised about options and charges. Please submit your requests well in advance. As library staff are currently not on site full-time, it will take longer for us to fulfil image requests.  

Permission to Publish

If you would like to publish images of items in St John’s College’s Special Collections, please complete the Permission to Publish (Print) and/or Permission to Publish (Electronic) form(s) as relevant; the latter includes publications on websites. This applies to all images of items in St John’s Special Collections regardless whether the images are supplied by the library or taken by yourself or others.
