How do I recommend a book?

How can I recommend a book for purchase by one of the libraries?

Please complete the form at:


A none of the above option is available for those who are not members of an Oxford college. Please note that even if the responsible subject librarian agrees to the purchase of your recommendation, it may be many weeks before the item is added to the stock of a Bodleian Libraries' library. An application for an inter-library loan could enable you to see the book within a fortnight or less (depending on where the title is held). Please note that in most cases our libraries do not lend material printed before 1900.
