About the Library

As a registered charity and an institution which aims to make its published research freely available, OIES is an open library with the goal of supporting all researchers and students, regardless of affiliation with OIES.

The library is currently undergoing a major restructuring project. An online catalogue was established in September 2014. The collection is continuously being added to the catalogue with completion expected by spring 2017.

If you are unable to find a publication in SOLO which may be held by the OIES library, please contact the librarian. OIES research papers are now included in Oxford University’s digital research archive, ORA.


All donations to the library whether from individuals, energy companies or publishers are highly appreciated. OIES would like to offer thanks to the following organizations and publications for supplying – either free of charge or at substantially discounted prices – important trade journals, statistical sources, and other materials vital to our research work, which could not have been afforded otherwise: Argus Media, Barclays, Blackwell’s, E&E Publishing, Energy Charter Secretariat, Institute of Energy Economics – Japan, Live Media & Publishers – India, MEES, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Multi-Science Publishing

To visit the library please make an appointment
