Finding books, journals and more

Oxford's library catalogue is called SOLO.

Use it to find printed and electronic books and journals at Oxford. This includes reference books, textbooks and research monographs for the subjects taught and researched at Oxford. SOLO also lists databases, images, maps, music scores, theses and more.

You can search by Author, Title or Subject and limit it to a particular library such as the Radcliffe Science Library (RSL) or the Bodleian Health Care Libraries (BHCL).  

Use the Request option to order items from the Closed Stacks.

To be sure of full access to all our online resources, on the SOLO home page log in with your Oxford Single Sign-On (at top right).

Here's a complete Guide to using SOLO.
