The original LMH library is large for a college library, says Emmy Ingle, library assistant for LMH 2018-2019, in a blog written by fellow graduate trainees at the Bodleian library.
'There is a historical reason for this,' she adds. 'LMH was founded in 1878 to allow women to study at the university; previously, colleges only admitted men.

One of the things I like about the college is how they continue their history of access and inclusivity'.
