We ask that face coverings are worn at all times, unless you are exempt under government guidelines and that you clean your desk before leaving with the cleaning materials provided. No food is permitted and please remember it is a space for silent study only.
At present we have a book fetching service in place for our readers. If any College member should wish to consult an item from our Library, just sign in to SOLO, find the book you need and select request. We will then retrieve the book for you and leave it in your pigeonhole, once you have finished with it you can return it to the Porters Lodge. Alternatively, you can email the library with any such requests and we will facilitate this for you.
Books in the St Cross College Library are arranged according to the Dewey Decimal Classification System, all our books are catalogued on the union catalogue, OLIS (Oxford Library Information System) and can be found via SOLO (Search Oxford Libraries Online).
