Supporting historians

The Bodleian History Faculty Library collections and services have moved in August 2012 to the Radcliffe Camera and Gladstone Link on the central Bodleian Library site.  Prior to this move, the Library was situated in the Old Indian Institute Building.

The Library houses the University of Oxford's main collection of undergraduate lending materials in both Medieval and Modern History, as well as in the History of Art and History of Science.

Designed primarily to serve undergraduates reading for the Honour School of Modern History and associated joint schools in the University, as well as undergraduates in the Department of History of Art, it also serves as a lending resource for graduate students and Senior Members of the Faculty of History.

The Bodleian History Faculty Library is one of the Bodleian Libraries. Access to and usage of the Library are governed by the general Regulations Relating to the Use of the Facilities of the Bodleian Libraries.

The Bodleian History Faculty Library is also managed and operated in tandem with the Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine Library and the History Collections and Services of the Bodleian Library.

The Library is open to all current resident members of the University and, during vacation, to external readers. See Admissions for more information.
