College Library

You can search the College Library's physical holdings and online resources as well as resources across the rest of the University via SOLO. To search only the books in the College Library, select "St Hilda's College Library" from the drop-down (the default is "search everything") and limit to "physical resources" using the options on the left hand side.

For more details about the Library and its services, current students should visit the Library WebLearn pages (login using single-sign on). You can also follow the Library on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Opening times

At present, the library is open to all current students and staff from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday (closed on weekends). From Monday 20th September, the library will be open 8am to 1am daily.

You no longer need a booking to stay and study but please note that entry logs from the door will be used to fulfil our track and trace obligations. Make sure to tap your BodCard to enter, even if you are following another user.

Study spaces are now 1m apart, and all possible windows are open for ventilation (wrap up warm!). Hand sanitising and the wearing of face coverings is strongly recommended to keep the library safe for all users and staff.

Please note that some building improvement works will be taking place in the library before term starts. Book shelves will remain accessible as far as possible. Though individual study areas may be closed off at times, study spaces elsewhere, computers and printing will remain available. If you are unable to get to a book you need, please contact Library staff who will be able to retrieve it for you and leave it for collection from the College Lodge.

All remote services remain in place for students who are studying away from Oxford, self-isolating or would prefer not to visit the Library in person.

To contact the library, please email or phone 01865 276849.
