- External library users
The Library is open to current Lincoln College members only. If an item in our modern collection is unavailable in any other Oxford University library, members of the University of Oxford and other scholarly institutions are welcome to make an appointment to consult it in our Library. We regret we are unable to lend our material to anyone who is not a member of the College or to provide photocopying or scanning facilities to visiting readers.
To make an appointment to consult our early printed books or to request images from them, please contact Sarah Cusk.
Lincoln College’s manuscripts are housed in the Weston Library of the Bodleian Libraries. Bodleian readers with manuscript permissions may consult them there in the usual way. Visiting researchers should click here for information on how to arrange to consult manuscripts held in the Weston Library.
