Should the College Library hold an item that is not available in the University's libraries, non-members who wish to consult it are advised to contact the Librarian

Disabilities

The College Library seeks to provide the best access possible for all members. Readers with disabilities are very welcome to contact the Librarian to discuss their needs before they arrive at St Antony's or at any stage during their time in College.

Although the College Library is not currently wheelchair accessible, Library staff will seek to make suitable alternative arrangements for College members to be able to access the Library's collections. On request, the Library may be able to supply magnifiers, book rests, foot rests and other pieces of ergonomic equipment.
