Current Library users

To help you find your way around the University Library, and make the most of its collections, introductory sessions and tours are scheduled throughout the year. View the timetable here:

Most sessions require you to book a place in advance. Readers who have a Raven password may do this online via the above timetable. Other users should email with their preferred date and time.

Academic tours for large groups and bespoke orientation tours

If you wish to arrange a tour for a group of your students, contact us at

School Groups

We are only able to accommodate a limited number of school groups per year and do not take bookings directly. Organisers should instead contact schools liaison officers at one of the colleges to arrange a visit as part of a wider participation programme.

Commercial tours

Please be aware that we are not able to offer tours for commercial purposes.
