About Jesus College/History/Libraries and Archives/


You may reuse digital images from the Libraries’ collections, in particular images hosted on Digital Bodleian, under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY 4.0) licence, unless otherwise stated. Please include the permalink and an appropriate citation. You do not need to request permission, but in case of enquiries, or to arrange new professional photography, please contact librarian@jesus.ox.ac.uk

Researchers consulting Jesus College manuscripts in the Weston Library may take photographs for the purposes of private research and study according to the Bodleian Libraries’ regulations, provided that copyright and/or publication right in the images is assigned to the College; we will then apply a Creative Commons licence enabling you to reuse the images. The same condition applies for photographs of early printed books in the Fellows’ Library.


Visitors to the College Archives are permitted to photograph documents there themselves for their own private research, although the Archivist reserves the right to forbid photography of documents in a particularly fragile state.

The Archivist can arrange for high-quality images, both print and digital, to be taken by a professional photographer. Details of services and fees are available on request.

Some documents in the Archives are closed to researchers under data protection laws. It is also important to remember that the Archives include several documents whose copyright is owned by another person or institution. Please contact archivist@jesus.ox.ac.uk for further information.
