With over 110,000 works in its collection, St. Anne’s has the largest library of all the Oxford colleges. The library is accessible 24 hours a day (outside of staffed hours, access is controlled using your key fob). During term (Weeks 1-8), the Library is staffed during the following times (alternating in Hartland House and the new library):
- Monday – Wednesday: 9.00a.m. – 1.00p.m. ; 2.00p.m. – 9.00p.m.
- Thursday – Friday: 9.00a.m. – 1.00p.m. ; 2.00p.m. – 6.00p.m.
- Vacation: Monday – Friday: 9.00a.m. – 1.00p.m. ; 2.00p.m. – 5.00p.m.
There are good collections in all subjects, and excellent collections in most. At the graduate level, Education, English, Philosophy, and Politics are among the subjects that are especially well catered for. If you do not find a book you are looking for in the library, you may easily request a purchase by filling out a request form at the main desk.
The St. Anne’s library also provides a thesis binding service that provides excellent value for money, a card-operated photocopier, and a DVD collection that MCR members may borrow from during staffed hours.
With the the completion and opening of the New Library in early 2017, St Anne’s library can offer students one of the most modern and well-equipped study places in whole Oxford – and enough space that every student at St Anne’s can find his or her personal spot to work.
Finally, do not hesitate to contact the Head Librarian, Clare White (clare.white [at] st-annes.ox.ac.uk) if you have any questions or require assistance with the library.
