Induction: the College Library and Bodleian
The College Library
Please watch the Library induction video below. This will introduce you to the Library team and will take you through how to use the Library including how to borrow and return books.
To help you get acquainted with the Search Oxford Libraries Online (SOLO) system, which is how you will access the materials you need for your Oxford University course, please complete this short murder mystery-themed task. You will only be able to complete the SOLO task once you have your Single Sign On (SSO).
Please note that the Library will be closed for the whole of Michaelmas 2023 for an accessibility improvement project. Please watch the video below for a temporary library in Bear Lane.
The Bodleian Libraries
Libraries will play a big part during your time at Oxford, whether providing access to online articles on your reading list or helping you find that elusive book. The Bodleian Libraries is the library service supporting the University and can help you get the most out of your course. A short 30-minute webinar has been scheduled into your timetable to introduce you to the Bodleian Libraries and how they can help you. This will take place via Microsoft Teams. There is no need to register; just click the link in your timetable to join. You will get the best experience by joining via the Teams desktop app, but you can join via a browser too (Google Chrome is recommended). If you have any accessibility requirements you would like to declare, please contact email@example.com.
Additionally, you can attend a tour of your subject library. Details are on Getting Started webpage where you can also watch a brief welcome video. For details of the library/libraries for your subject area, visit the Libraries webpage.
