Purpose of this guide

This guide is intended for weekly class students studying courses in Modern Languages at Oxford University Department for Continuing Education, although of course others may find it useful.

Use this guide to find out about books and films in the Rewley House Continuing Education Library, and also about electronic resources such as e-books and free online language courses.

Those languages for which we have a lot of resources each have their own page within this guide. Other languages taught within the Department are included on the pages "Other languages A-J" and "Other languages K-Z".

Who can use which resources?

Weekly class students

Students enrolled on a Continuing Education weekly class which includes a written assignment can:

  • register to borrow books from the Continuing Education Library.
  • access electronic resources such as e-books, journal articles and databases from within the university network, for example in the Library or in the resources room at Ewert House. Weekly class students cannot access subscription resources from home, but there are many free online resources available.

Students on award-bearing courses

Students enrolled on an award-bearing Continuing Education course, such as undergraduate and postgraduate certificates and diplomas and Masters degrees, can:

  • register to borrow books from the Continuing Education Library.
  • become a member of other Oxford University libraries such as the Taylor Institution Library and the Bodleian.
  • access electronic resources such as e-books, journal articles and databases from any internet connection using your Single Sign On.

Other members of the University

Staff and students of the University who are not members of the Continuing Education Department may use the Library for reference. Short loans may be made in exceptional circumstances: please ask at the Library desk.
