First stop for books on Education

Search all of Oxford's collections

  • Search SOLO (Search Oxford Libraries Online), for print and ebooks.

Search the Bodleian Education Library only

  • Searches can be limited to the Education Library (choose Education Library from the dropdown menu). However, only do this if you are short on time and only want to know what is physically on the shelves in our library. Otherwise, it is best to see all the books available to you and to ensure you see all the ebooks too.

Make the most of libraries around Oxford

Although the Bodleian Education Library is likely to be your first choice for books on Education, you may also find some of Oxford's other library collections useful.

You can have most Bodleian Closed Stack material delivered to the Education Library for you to read (not to take home). 

Libraries you may want to use include:

Books from libraries outside Oxford

If you find a book that is not held by Oxford, that you wish to consult, we can try to get it for you through interlibrary loan.
