Welcome to Oxford!
Congratulations on gaining a place to study English at Oxford!
We're looking forward to meeting you in person in Michaelmas Term.
Until then, we hope that this guide will give you an idea of the range of libraries and library resources available to you, and how to make the best use of them.
If you have any questions about using the libraries, please do get in touch.
