Access to the Bodleian Library - undergraduate students doing dissertation-level research are eligible to apply for reference access to the Bodleian Library. Sociology students will find the Bodleian Social Science Library particularly useful. To apply, you'll need to get an application form from the Library Help Zone ( Level 1) or download it from our web pages. Use SOLO (the Oxford University Libraries' Catalogue) to check what they hold and where it is.
