Ask a Librarian enquiry form
Our Ask an Oxford Librarian service is available for more detailed questions about our collections and services, including admission to the libraries, our catalogues and electronic resources, copying and interlibrary loans, and reference enquiries.
Please note that we would prefer to receive more complex enquiries in writing; this ensures that we understand the details of your enquiry correctly and that we can devote a sufficient amount of time to the answer.
We will respond within five full working days of the receipt of an enquiry for at least 90% of correspondence, but in all cases within ten full working days of the receipt of an enquiry. Full working days are Monday to Friday except for the Easter and Christmas/New Year closure periods.
