Alumni wishing to use the Library should apply to the Librarian in the first instance.

Disabled access

There is step-free access to the Bracken Library reading room. The Wolfson Hall toilets are also located on the ground floor. The nearest wheelchair accessible toilet is on the main concourse.

We regret that there is no wheelchair disabled access to the Bracken Library Gallery or the Bevin Library. Anyone requiring access to these areas should contact a member of the Library staff.

The bookshelves in the library are tall, and the higher shelves are reached with the aid of kick-stools. If you have any difficulty accessing the shelves, please let us know as we can fetch books for you.

We are keen to ensure that the College Library meets your individual needs. Please feel free to come and talk to us at any time. We arrange tours of the library for all new students in October, however, we are always happy to meet you one-to-one to offer a personalised introduction to the library.
