OxLibris: Welcome

Information about the OxLibris scheme for local Oxfordshire state school sixth form pupils.

2021 Library Sessions Closed

We are unable to run OxLibris library sessions during the 2020-21 school year because of restrictions to library capacity put in place as part of Covid-19 safety measures.
Instead, we have produced a range of resources designed to develop the study skills needed to complete the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) or other coursework. You can find these by under the 'Study Skills' tab.

We are also offering online taught study skills sessions for sixth form and college classes.

If you would like more information about the scheme please contact

OxLibris is a service run by University of Oxford librarians to help year 12 and 13 students with independent research for an EPQ or A Level coursework.

We know that this may be your first time doing academic research and it can feel really daunting. Don’t worry - we're here to help! This guide contains handy tips, and information about booking study sessions.

We don’t just want to help with your EPQ or coursework. The skills you develop during these projects will also be really useful if you start a degree, whatever university you’d like to go to, or for any career that involves research.

Oxfordshire state school students in year 12 and 13 can visit as a school group in July and September or book a place at an independent study session on a Thursday in August.
