Can I use this library?


Users of the Bodleian Law Library must hold either a valid University card or a Bodleian reader's ticket.

University cards are issued to current staff and students of Oxford University by colleges or, in the case of some staff and designated Academic Visitors, by the Law Faculty Office.

Bodleian readers' tickets may be obtained by former Oxford students and others needing to use the Library from the Bodleian Libraries' Admissions Office located on the ground floor of  Weston Library  in Broad Street. (Alumni may remember the Weston under its previous name, the New Bodleian Library.)Ask for further directions from Main Information Desk in the Blackwell Hall of the Weston.

Full details and an application form are available on the Bodleian Libraries admissions web page.

In exceptional circumstances, visitors may be admitted for one day only without a University card or Bodleian reader's ticket, by prior arrangement with the Law Library.

Note: Licensing restrictions mean that many electronic legal databases are restricted to holders of an Oxford Single Sign On. Administration of these are done by Oxford IT Services, the Bodleian Law Library is unable to allocate these either to current University members or to Bodleian readers.
