Official Papers guides


  Oxford's collection of official paper material is outstanding. The Bodleian Library as a legal deposit library receives one copy of every item published in the UK. This guide aims to give an overview of the various collections within the Official Papers section and the finding aids relevant to criminology. The Official Papers section is situated in the Bodleian Law Library on the ground floor. All material is on open shelf and accessible to readers. Staff are happy to help.

The Bodleian Social Science Library houses research and teaching collections in support of the Centre for Criminology and the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies and contains the former libraries of both units.

For information on the Criminology & Socio-Legal collections, opening hours and contact details please see the Criminology libguide.
