Librarian's Letter

This letter from the Librarian Clare contains all the essential information you need to know at the beginning or end of term.



Welcome to St Anne's College Library!  We are one of the largest College Libraries with over 100,000 volumes and we are constantly developing our collection to ensure that it is up to date and relevant to your studies.  We aim to provide core materials for all undergraduate and taught postgraduate courses that College offers, as well as holding a wealth of other interesting titles for wider reading.

This guide contains all the essential practical information you need to know about using the Library as well as linking to information provided by the Bodleian Libraries to support you in your studies and research.

The College Library is run by a friendly team of four librarians who are happy to assist you whenever they can - so please do come and ask one of us if you need help!
