Library Services for Fellows

Fellows are welcome to use the Library during regular hours of operation (Monday to Friday, 10.00 to 17.00), and during Ordinary Meetings of Fellows (select Thursday evenings until 18.30). If you have questions about your privileges, please ask a Librarian.

Additionally, we support a range of services for Fellows who cannot make it to the Library in person:

  • the catalogue to printed materials and the digitised subject index are available online, and all our records are included in COPAC;
  • if you live in the UK you can borrow up to eight books for three months from the Library through our postal loans service. To access this service, please email with the books you need and the address to which you would like them posted. Please note: we are unable to post fragile items, items published pre-1850, and heavy items. Posting of items is at the discretion of the Library team;
  • photocopies can be made from printed materials and posted to you with an invoice;
  • photographs from library materials can be ordered.


We subscribe to a number of electronic journals, which Fellows can access through the Open Athens or by searching our online catalogue.
