Regent's Park College Home: Finding resources

Regent's Park College

Finding books and journal articles

SOLO LogoTo search for books held in the college library, David Nicholls Collection and the Angus Library and Archive, please use the University’s online catalogue, SOLO.

You can restrict your search just to Regent’s Park College using the drop-down list next to ‘Search everything’.

You can also use SOLO to search for journal articles and ebooks.

Sign into SOLO using your Oxford Single Sign-on (SSO) in order to obtain full search results when using the catalogue. The section "My Account" is where you can renew books and manage your university library account.  You can limit your search to “Regent's Park only” if you so wish but you can also carry out a search across all Oxford libraries. Your search results will provide you with a shelfmark which will help you to locate the book on the library shelves. Libraries across Oxford use a variety of shelfmarks; here at Regent's Park we use a customised version of Dewey Decimal.  

Remember that  you can always ask library staff for help if you are unsure about how to search and locate items or are baffled  by reading list references.

LibGuides logo  SOLO LibGuide will help you to help navigate and to get best use of the catalogue.

Book purchase requests

If you want to suggest a book for purchase, please email the librarian, who will reply quickly to let you know if we can make the purchase. We will always keep you informed if there are problems with particular requests. 

Please supply as much information as possible: author(s), title, place of publication and publisher, year of publication and ISBN.

Although we welcome book suggestions  it may not be possible to buy every book. The Bodleian libraries purchase many ebook titles, so it may be possible for you to access the book you need in an alternative format. You can find ebooks by searching SOLO.
