Guide for weekly class students: About the Library

A guide to library services and resources for weekly class students

COVID-19 closure

The Continuing Education Library is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Information about services and re-opening will be updated on the Continuing Education Library blog.

If you have books on loan please keep hold of them for the time being if possible.   All loans have automatically been renewed until 12th October.  If you do need to return your books before then please see information about using our Bodleian Libraries book return hubs   Please note that the Bodleian has returns hubs around Oxford but that Rewley House is NOT one of these hubs.  You can use any of the hubs listed if you prefer not to keep hold of your books for the time being.

We very much regret that we can not lend books or provide computer access to you at this time.  However, you can access a range of ‘open-access’  online material via SOLO. For more information please see "what can I access from home? a guide for weekly class students".

Library staff are working from home and are happy to help you, please contact us on

How do I join the Library?

Registration cards are available in the classrooms at Ewert House. It's helpful if you fill one in and bring it to the Library desk. However, if your class isn't held at Ewert House, or you can't find a registration card, please just come to the Library. It's also helpful, but not essential, to bring your course enrolment confirmation.

If you already have a Bodleian Libraries Reader card or a University card, please bring that as you will be able to use it at Continuing Education. If you don't, we will give you one of our library cards.

You can also register by phone or email, or online on the Library website .

If you still have a card from a previous course, please bring that as we can simply update your record and you can continue to use the card.

If you have enrolled on a course starting in the autumn, you can become a borrowing member from 1st September. If you are enrolled on a course starting in other terms, you can become a borrowing member once the previous term has ended. If you have enrolled on classes in consecutive terms, your membership will go through to the end of the final course.

New cards are available immediately, and your membership lasts until the final hand in date for assessed work for your course. Please note that enrolment on a weekly class only entitles you to access to the Rewley House Continuing Education Library.
