Entrance to the Library is from Chapel Court. During staffed hours, the front door is unlocked. Outside staffed hours the door is locked.  You will need to use your access card at the card reader beside the door to enter and leave the Library. 

Joining the Library

New Junior Members are sent a registration form the summer before matriculation. Provided that the form is returned by the date specified, your borrowing record should be created and stored in the system, so that you can start borrowing at the start of Michaelmas Term.

University Cards

All Junior Members are issued with a University Card, which enables you to borrow materials from the College Library.  Readers can borrow items from the issue desk during staffed hours, or by using the self-issue system at any time.  Your University Card is for your personal use only. You are responsible for any items issued on your card.
