**Please note that the College Archive staff offices and some of the archive collections have been relocated during Dec 2017/Jan 2018. The archive reading room is now located in the Old Library for most readers. Additional collection moves are also planned for April 2018, so archive Reading Room opening hours and the archive enquiry service will be significantly disrupted. Please contact the Archivist for more details: firstname.lastname@example.org **
On these pages we aim to display PDF catalogues of our larger collections. More catalogues will be added to this page as they become available. We plan in the long term to move these PDF catalogues to a dedicated online archive catalogue which will be fully searchable.
These catalogues cover only a small portion of the complete archival holdings of Magdalen College. Not all collections are yet catalogued, especially those relating to the institutional archive or newly acquired collections which have arrived at the College recently. For further information about all our collections, please click on the “About the Archives” page on this section, or contact the Archivist.
NEW FOR 2018:
The typescript volumes for the medieval muniments (Macray) and the estate papers (Woolgar) have been digitised during 2017. PDF files are available from the Archivist on request.
The long-established Guide to the Archives of Magdalen College by Janie Cottis and Robin Darwall-Smith (former College archivists) is now available for download. This Guide provides the best overview of the historic archive collections held by the College, although modern records are not included.
