New College Notes is dedicated to short, learned notes on aspects of college history, and especially its special collections and archives, in the style of the Oxford journal Notes & Queries.
New College Notes is available open-access to all interested readers through our website. Both the current and past issues of New College Notes will remain accessible via this page.
Anyone wishing to contact or to contribute to this journal should email the Fellow Librarian. Readers of our special collections in both the college Library and the college Archives are warmly invited to send us contributions.
General enquiries about consulting Library collections, including the manuscripts listed in H.O. Coxe, Catalogus codicum MSS. qui in collegiis aulisque Oxoniensibus hodie adservantur (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1852), should be directed to the Librarian, or for material relating to the College to the Archivist.
