Until the historic libraries of St John’s College are reopened in 2023/24, we only have a limited number of appointments available to consult St John’s College’s manuscripts, early printed books, personal papers, and other Special Collections materials.

We currently offer consultation appointments of 2hrs per person per week on a case-by-case basis. These are exclusively for consulting material relevant to current research projects (incl. dissertations, theses, publications, and other current academic work). Please book your appointment at least 10 working days in advance, as we may not be able to accommodate short-notice requests.

(Please provide shelfmarks and/ or manuscript numbers if known.)

(Please note that most of our appointments take place on Tuesdays, 10am-noon or 1.30pm-3.30pm; see above)
