Library and Resources

Be inspired to work by the beauty of our popular College Library. Open long hours so you can study when it suits you, the Main Library offers 74 study spaces, a generous borrowing limit, and the opportunity to request the purchase of books you need. Our friendly Library staff are here to help you get the most out of the libraries of Oxford and to support your studies. Additional study spaces and our popular discussion rooms are available in the Bear Lane Reading Room.

Lincoln Library is a great place to study. The building itself is really pretty (one of the nicest in Oxford in my opinion) and it is a popular study spot for many students at Lincoln. It is conveniently located on Turl Street, and is stocked with books for all subjects taught at the College.
