Welcome to the Codrington Library

The Codrington Library of All Souls College is open to all members of Oxford University by application, and to bona fide researchers by appointment. The collections are particularly strong in law and history, and are almost all catalogued onto SOLO; readers from all disciplines are welcomed.

The Codrington Library is reference only, and books may not be borrowed by readers.
