The Regent’s Park College library service consists of three libraries each with its own distinct focus.
The college library is the main library used by students and faculty at Regent’s, and it is usually available 24 hours a day. From 14 April 2021, it will be open to those students of Regent’s Park College who are resident in Oxford.
The college library holds over 30,000 books and journals reflecting the humanities focus of the college, including excellent theology, English, law, history and philosophy collections.
The Angus Library and Archive
The Angus Library and Archive is the leading world-class collection for the study of Baptist and nonconformist history and heritage. It is currently closed.
The Angus collection comprises over 70,000, printed works, manuscripts, minute books and artefacts from the late fifteenth century onwards.
Baptist and nonconformist history are among the many subjects people research in the Angus, with people also studying slavery, human rights, women’s rights, missionary work, geography and linguistics to name a few.
The Angus Library and Archive also has its own website.
David Nicholls Memorial Collection
The David Nicholls Memorial Collection, based on the private collection of Britain’s foremost Haiti expert, comprises some 4,000 volumes. The majority of the texts deal specifically with Haiti, the Dominican Republic and other Caribbean societies, in addition to David’s collection of theological, sociological and political works. Like the other libraries on site, the Nicholls collection is currently closed.
The library collections are catalogued and searchable using SOLO, the university library catalogue.
