Senior Library Assistant:
For information on how to access the Library and our services during the pandemic, please see our COVID-19 page.
If you are new to Oxford, you might like to check out some basic guidance to help get you started with using the libraries and our resources. In the current situation, we are sadly unable to give you the kind of welcome we would normally aspire to but please see these pages for more information on how to get hold of the material you need while access to the libraries is restricted.
The Music Faculty Library exists to support the teaching and research activities of the Music Faculty and provides for the borrowing needs of students (both undergraduate and graduate), researchers and senior members.
Most of the stock is for loan and consists of nearly 20,000 items of printed music and about 25,000 books and journals. In addition, the library houses the main sound recordings collection of the University with nearly 5,000 CDs, 15,000 LPs and a substantial DVD collection. LPs are not available for loan; there are facilities for using these materials in the library.
Opening hours for the Christmas vacation will be the same but the library will close at 17.00 on Friday 18 December and re-open at 9.30 on Monday 4 January.
