The aim of this blog is to help students and researchers using the US Studies collections held at the Vere Harmsworth Library, one of the Bodleian Libraries of the University of Oxford, as well as to highlight the variety of resources that are available both in Oxford and more widely.

The Vere Harmsworth Library is the University of Oxford’s main research library for US Studies. Located in the Rothermere American Institute, our collection focuses predominantly on the history (social, political and economic) of the United States from Colonial times to the present day.

The library catalogue can be searched via SOLO, the unified catalogue of Oxford’s library resources. More information about collections and resources available for US Studies can be found on our online guide.

More information can be found on the library website and blog. You can also find the VHL on Twitter or Facebook.
