Getting started: Alumni

If you are an alumnus of the University of Oxford, you can take advantage of a range of Bodleian Libraries resources. You can find out more about the alumni benefits available to you on the Oxford Alumni website

Joining the libraries

If you hold an undergraduate or graduate degree from Oxford University, you can apply for a Bodleian Reader card free of charge. This will give you access to the Bodleian Libraries and access to physical and digital resources while you are on-site.

Bodleian Reader card holders cannot borrow items and they cannot access subscription e-resources remotely. 

Find resources

In collaboration with the Saïd Business School Alumni Relations Office and the University’s Alumni Office, the Bodleian Libraries are pleased to offer all matriculated alumni access to a selection of high-quality digital resources, including access to journals through JSTOR. To take advantage of this offer, you will need to register with Oxford Business Alumni (OBA).

Add to the Oxford digital theses collection

As an Oxford alumnus, if you hold an Oxford postgraduate degree by research you are eligible to deposit a digital copy of your theses with ORA. Find out more about who can deposit and how to deposit on the digital theses and ORA guide.
