The Official Papers collection in the Bodleian Library consists of a comprehensive set of British parliamentary papers from 1801 to the present, as well as earlier records of the proceedings of parliament and non-parliamentary papers. The Republic of Ireland parliamentary and non-parliamentary papers and the publications of international organisations, notably the United Nations.

The Bodleian Library has a particularly good collection of British Official Papers due to the fact that we are a legal deposit library and therefore we hold the vast majority of material published in this area. With specialised staff knowledge and searching tools this material is easily accessible.
