Welcome back

A very warm welcome to the Library to all new and returning students.  We are counting down the days until everyone is back in College.


New students - with over 100+ libraries within the University system, it can sometimes feel that just finding a book or an article is a struggle.  Don’t despair, there will be plenty of support for you as you start to navigate your way around the library system.

You will have an introductory session to show you how to use the College Library during your first week, which will cover all the essential things you need to know to get you started.  There will be other sessions to attend that will introduce you to the Bodleian libraries, including faculty and departmental libraries, and how to search SOLO (the catalogue). 

Remember to ask if you are confused, need clarification or just want some pointers.

Returning students – can’t remember what to do or want to expand your library skills, please just ask or email librarian@hmc.ox.ac.uk.
