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).

You no longer need a booking to stay and study but please note that, while the booking system is suspended, 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 will remain 2m apart and 2m from the shelves, and furniture must not be rearranged.

These changes are in response to the expectation of lower levels of library use over the summer. Social distancing, hand sanitising, and the wearing of face coverings remain essential to keeping the library safe for all users and staff.


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.
