New College Notes is dedicated to learned notes and essays on aspects of college history, and especially our Library and Archives collections, 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 Librarian. Readers of our special collections in both the Library and in the 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 also be directed to the Librarian, or for material relating to the College to the Archivist.
