 === Historical note === === Historical note ===
 Oxford has an extremely rich, diverse and fragmented library service provided by over 100 independently managed library units. They fall into four categories: the Central libraries (Bodleian, Taylor, Ashmolean); other Faculty Libraries; Departmental (General Board) and College libraries. A majority are College or Departmental libraries with two or fewer staff. The categories vary in their relative responsibilities to teaching and research though no category is entirely homogenous.\\ ​ Oxford has an extremely rich, diverse and fragmented library service provided by over 100 independently managed library units.

 It is possible to search in the author indexes on any names associated with the work. Names are entered not only for the main author of a work, but also for editors, translators,​ illustrators,​ engravers, printers and publishers (where these are known). The Library of Congress Name Authority File is used to ensure that names are drawn together, however many variants are apparent on title pages and in colophons. Library of Congress subject headings are also included. Places of printing are included both in the form that appears on the title page or in the colophon, as well as in a standardised hierarchical place name. It is possible to search in the author indexes on any names associated with the work.
