Finding books

Books in Jesus College appear in SOLO, the library catalogue covering the majority of library collections of the University of Oxford. You can check SOLO anywhere without logging in.

If the book you want is on loan to another reader, you can place a hold on it. You will receive an email once the book is available. If it's urgent, please contact the Library.

 

Requesting books

Can't find a book on your reading list? We encourage you to recommend books for the Library, including additional copies of textbooks.

Although the Library cannot guarantee to buy every book suggested, remember that the College offers book grants.

 

Printing and copying

The photocopier outside the Upper Library also offers scanning and colour printing. It is maintained by the college Computing Office.

 

DVD Library

The JCR & MCR DVD collection is housed in the Upper Library. You may borrow a DVD for up to 7 days (no renewals) by scanning it out in the usual way.

 

Meyricke Library

The main library for students at Jesus College is the Meyricke Library. It is open 24 hours a day. Wi-Fi is available throughout the Library.

Meyricke Upper LibraryThree reading rooms offer you a variety of study spaces:

  • The Lower Library contains law, science, and English literature.
  • The Upper Library holds books in the humanities and social sciences. You can also find the reference collection of dictionaries and atlases here.
  • The Periodicals Room on the ground floor holds theology and a number of serial publications in the humanities.

Books on study skills are in section N in the Lower Library lobby. The welfare library is kept in the college nurse's waiting room.

 

How to borrow

The Library is self-service. To borrow a book, scan it at one of the self-issue computers on your way out. You will need your University Card to borrow.

Books can be borrowed until the end of each term or for the vacation. You will receive an automatic reminder when your books are due for return or renewal.

Note that if you pass a book to another student in college, you are still responsible for it.

 

Returning and renewing books

To return a book, simply leave it in the secure book return box on the ground floor, or on one of the designated tables at each level of the Library. The Library staff will then remove the book from your record.

You can renew your books through SOLO using your Single Sign-On. If your books have become overdue, please ask staff to renew them for you.

More in Oxford

Jesus College Libraries are independent of the Bodleian Libraries, but college members are entitled to use the Bodleian's services. These include extensive e-resources (books, journals, and databases).

Note that, in general, members of Jesus College may not use the libraries of other colleges. (All Souls and Nuffield are open on application.) However, books held only in college libraries and not in the Bodleian may be consulted by appointment.

Similarly, students from other colleges (and Old Members of Jesus College) may not use, or borrow from, the Meyricke Library without prior arrangement.
