New College

Explore New College Library on a behind-the-scenes tour! You’ll have the chance to visit our beautiful 1930s Library and get up close to some of our fabulous manuscript and rare book treasures in a private exhibition.

One of the university’s greatest collections, more manuscripts survive from the medieval library of New College than from that of any other Oxford or Cambridge college. Today, New College Library holds what is probably the finest collection of medieval manuscripts of any of the Oxford colleges, also holding more incunabula (15th-century European imprints) than any other undergraduate college at Oxford. The Library’s collections of rare and early printed books are likewise spectacular.
