Library Carrels & Lockers
Carrels in the Library are provided for members of College without access to suitable private study space. Lockable drawers are also available in the Library.
There are 7 casual carrels that are available daily without prior booking on a first-come, first-served basis.
As demand for the 27 individually allocated carrels normally exceeds supply, there is an allocation process, which is reviewed from time to time. The Senior Tutor, in conjunction with the Accommodation Office, is responsible for the allocation and use of carrels, administration of keys, paperwork, etc.
Requests for a carrel should be made by completing a College Carrel Application Form outlining the reasons for the request.
Carrels are allocated in the first instance to those whose departmental, faculty library, or private facilities for work are inadequate.

This lecture will explore how publishers became responsible for promoting authors through portraiture in the mid-Victorian period. In particular it will focus on Edward Moxon and his role in expanding the readership of both William Wordsworth and Alfred Tennyson. While portraits of Wordsworth were relatively scarce, Tennyson was surrounded by sculptors, painters and photographers, which led to a new and disturbing experience of literary celebrity that had a major impact on his career.
