Library and archives
Christ Church Library is an important resource and research centre primarily intended to support students during their studies; a separate 24hr Law Library is available to law students. The Upper library also contains a large collection of early printed books and manuscripts and is particularly rich in music, theology, classics, travel books, numismatics, early science, medicine and Hebrew studies.
All members of the college are welcome to use the modern collections on the ground floor. College members and visiting researchers can consult rare books and manuscripts by appointment. The Library also offers numerous exhibitions, talks and workshops throughout the year, some of which are also open to members of the public.
The Library will be closed on Good Friday (14th April) and will re-open on Easter Monday (17th April) from 9am till midnight
