The College Library

LMH has a large working library (approx. 75,000 books). The Library is open to all members of the College 24 hours a day and is well stocked in all the major areas of study, including multiple copies of undergraduate key texts. The library also has a study and life skills section, DVDs, Molymod kits, as well as a selection of accessibility aids for use within the library (including coloured overlays, noise reduction headphones, and a variety of book / laptop stands). If you require a book which the Library does not hold, please recommend it to the Librarian for purchase. From the Library, students have access to all the electronic resources (catalogues, databases, e-journals) provided by the University.  There is a computer room in the Library, well equipped with computers, and printing and photocopying facilities. You can find out more about the Library and its facilities here.

You will only be able to borrow books once you have attended a Library induction session and familiarised yourself with the Library Rules. If you miss your scheduled session, you will need to contact the Librarian for the relevant information.

University Libraries

You will be given introductions and inductions to all of the University libraries relevant for your subjects during Freshers’ week. If you miss these sessions, you should make a point of visiting the library at the earliest opportunity, certainly before you need a book in a hurry. Most University libraries will have leaflets available to explain how to use their resources, and further information can also be found here.

Other college libraries can normally only be used by appointment with their Librarian, to consult books not held in the Bodleian or faculty libraries.
