  • History

    The English Faculty Library (EFL) was founded in 1914 and exists primarily to serve all those reading and teaching English at Oxford, as well as other readers requiring access to its collections. For many years it was housed in the attic of the Examination Schools before moving into the purpose-built St Cross Building in 1965.
