Welcome to the Music subject pages of The Bodleian Libraries! Please see the various pages here for information on library provision for Music within the University of Oxford.

The libraries are now closed until further notice, owing to the Coronavirus pandemic. Staff are working from home, doing the best we can to support our readers remotely. Although we are without access to the physical collections, we have extensive collections of electronic resources and we have been adding to these in recent days in an attempt to mitigate the effects of the lockdown. Temporary access to some additional databases has been generously provided by publishers (e.g. ProQuest's Classical Scores Library). If there are specific books or other resources which you urgently need, please contact the Music teams directly (Weston Library / Music Faculty Libraryor fill in a recommendation form. We can't promise to be able to be able to help but we will do what we can. See our COVID-19 page for tips on how to access Music materials online during the current crisis.

For information on locating Music materials, see also the Finding Aids LibGuide.
