The College Library is primarily intended for current students, Fellows, and Academic Visitors of St Antony’s College only (note, SCR members are not usually granted card access).

Current students and Fellows of Nuffield College and graduate students from the Maison Française d’Oxford are encouraged to make appointments by email or telephone (+44 1865 274480) should they wish to use the College Library and/or borrow books.

Should the College Library hold an item that is not available in the University's libraries, non-members who wish to consult it will usually be admitted if prior arrangement with the College Librarian is made.



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.

Regrettably, the Library's main reading room and book stacks are not wheelchair accessible. However, on request Library staff will provide alternative access to materials and supply ergonomic equipment.
