Library services from 6 September – booking no longer required!

From Monday 6 September it will no longer be necessary to make a booking to use the Library.   You will be able to browse the shelves, borrow books, study in the reading room or at seating in the lower library and use printing, photocopying and scanning services without booking – please just turn up!   The “click and collect”, “browse and borrow” and space finder services will all be withdrawn on 6 September.   However, the LibraryScan service will continue until at least Christmas and we hope will continue to be useful, particularly to those who are not able to come to Oxford.

What will it be like in the Library? Seating remains generously spaced and we will ensure windows are open so that the Library is airy and well ventilated.    Rigorous hygiene procedures will also remain in place and we would be grateful if readers could continue to wear face coverings (unless exempt) for everyone’s protection.

Library opening hours are currently Mon-Fri 9.30-5pm, with earlier opening from 9am from 13 September and full term time opening from 27 September.

Do get in touch at if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in the Library.
