Collection overview, Key resources etc
The premier research library for the study of Numismatics in Oxford University is the Sackler Library, which incorporates the former library of the Heberden Coin Room of the Ashmolean Museum. The Bodleian Library is an additional resource especially for rare and manuscript material.
Libraries & Reading Rooms: Principal collections
The Sackler Library is home to the main research collections in Numismatics as well as Old World Archaeology, and Art History. Included is a large number of numismatic sales catalogues arranged according to the Cambridge System.
The majority of books in the Sackler Library are on open shelves. Many of the books and periodicals in the collection may be borrowed, although major reference works and all Eastern and Western Art books are confined to the library.
The Bodleian Library has, by virtue of its copyright library status, accumulated a comprehensive collection of books in the field of British Numismatics. Most of this material is not located on open access.
Libraries & Reading Rooms: Associated collections
A small collection of mostly reference books is housed in the Heberden Coin Room of the Ashmolean Museum.
A useful resource for Numismatics-related websites is Intute: Arts and Humanities.
Oxford University e-Journals, Oxford's electronic journal management system provides access to the Numismatics periodicals to which the University has online subscriptions.
