The collective holdings of the Main Library and Centre Libraries comprise over 110,000 volumes. Subscriptions to current periodicals number about 300.
The Main Library itself holds over 60,000 volumes and subscribes to over 70 current journals with the general collections in modern history, politics, international relations and economics, the collections on Europe, Asia, and the non-Slavonic collections on Russia, the former USSR and Eastern Europe. The Main Library also houses some 20th century archive collections including the Wheeler-Bennett papers. St Antony's is associated with the Oxford Libraries Information System (OLIS), and has been a contributor to the University's on-line union library catalogue since 1990. Its libraries provide access to many on-line and networked research resources.
The other libraries on the College site are the Middle East Centre Library, the Latin American Centre Library, the Bodleian Japanese Library and the Russian and Eurasian Studies Centre Library. Members also have access to the University libraries. The College also holds an extensive collection of archival material relating to the Middle East at the Middle East Centre Archive.
The Gulbenkian Reading Room is situated below the Main Library.
