Subject and research guides

Aimed at anyone new to the Bodleian Libraries, our subject and research guides will help you identify key library resources and tools for your studies and research.

Our subject librarians provide guides to the latest and most useful library resources in your discipline.

Our curators’ guides will help you access the special collections of the Bodleian Libraries such as manuscripts, archives, maps, music, and electronic legal deposit.

Research guidance is also available, whether you would like support with reference management software, the Oxford University Research Archive, or the 3D printing service.
