Welcome to the Sainsbury Library

WelcomeA warm welcome to our new students! You can start familiarising yourself with the Sainsbury Library by watching our induction videos.

The University’s Business & Management subject library, at the Saïd Business School. The Sainsbury Library is one of the Bodleian Libraries, a collection of research and departmental libraries dotted across Oxford. Access to the library is currently restricted to those who have seat bookings, so please see below for information on how to book your seat. The library is open from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday, with additional seatings until 7pm available at the start of Michaelmas Term.

We realise that this year is a little unusual, but we hope that you will be able to help you find all the information you need to feel confident in how to use the library and the online resources available to you. The library staff are on hand to answer any questions, just contact us using the details on the left. There are no stupid questions (actually we prefer the stupid ones because they’re usually easier to answer!), so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Eureka Repository Closure

The Eureka Repository has now closed.

For many years Eureka was the open access repository for research at the Saïd Business School. It was originally established by Sainsbury Library staff to provide an easy deposit service for academics and research staff at the School. However, the Oxford research support landscape has changed radically in recent years with many improvements at an institutional level. Most significantly, this includes the provision of Symplectic Elements, a research information management system, and ORA, the Oxford University Research Archive. Both of these systems are available to the entire University and are now at the core of the research workflow in Oxford, and will be used for the University’s submission to REF. Therefore, it is no longer necessary for the Sainsbury Library to provide a dedicated research repository for the School.

Eureka was sunsetted at the end of August 2020. The live repository is no longer available online. A snapshot version of Eureka is now available to view through the Bodleian’s web archive, requests for old Eureka URLs are now directed to an archived version where possible. Publications for current academic staff that have been stored in Eureka have now been migrated over to Symplectic Elements. All outputs nominated for REF 2021 will need to have a record in Symplectic Elements. The logistics of REF nomination is managed by the School’s Research Office, if you have any questions about this please contact in the first instance. Please contact if you have any other questions about Eureka. is now LinkedIn Learning is now LinkedIn Learning. You can access this huge library of online, video based, courses, via Molly, the IT Learning Centre’s collection of online learning resources. Courses include a wide range of software and IT related topics (as well as soft skills and business skills) for beginners through to experts.
