The Library supports study in all the principal subjects studied by undergraduates at St Peter’s. Postgraduates may also find materials useful for their research, or the taught courses which they are following, and the Library has a fund specifically for buying books for graduate students.  However, most of the material needed by those doing postgraduate work is provided by University collections.

College Members

The Library is generally staffed during 'office hours'. Library staff are always ready to help members of St Peter's in their use of Library resources. Please call in and see us, or get in touch by email, if you think we can help in any way.

External readers

Enquiries from non-members of the College should be made in writing in the first instance. Members of the University of Oxford who are not also members of St Peter's must make an appointment in advance if they wish to look at material from the College Library. This will normally be permitted provided that the item is not available in the Bodleian Library or in a faculty or departmental library.
