Information for Visiting Readers

Christ Church Library, by Sidney Causer, 1993

Christ Church Library is open to bona fide researchers by prior appointment only. If possible readers should bring a valid Bodleian or British Library reader's card to serve as identification. Postgraduate students should also bring a letter of introduction from their supervisor.

Since seating for external readers is limited, we cannot guarantee to accommodate external readers at very short notice. In particular, it is difficult to admit external readers during the months of May and June, when our undergraduates are preparing for their final examinations and the space has to be devoted to serving the needs of our current members.

Please contact us to make an appointment at least two working days in advance of your proposed visit.

Readers are asked to use larger libraries, such as the Bodleian Library, the British Library and other university libraries where possible. In general, researchers will be refused access to materials which are also held by the Bodleian, unless there is a special reason for seeing the Christ Church copy.

You can search the Bodleian's holdings using OLIS.
