About

Nuffield College has an excellent large research library, regarded very highly by academics and students alike. Its main purpose is to support the College’s research interests in the Social Sciences (economics, politics and sociology) but as well as being a college library for members of Nuffield, it also admits postgraduate students, researchers and staff from the rest of the University.

Following the foundation of the College in 1937, the growth of the Library was largely a post-war development, and its basic stock was greatly enlarged and improved by the purchase in the 1950s of the library of G.D.H. Cole. Located mainly in the College’s 11 storey tower, the collection now totals about 80,000 books, along with over 600 journal titles and about 120,000 government publications.
