Resources available in Oxford

Linguistic Atlases

Oxford’s libraries have some of the best holdings on the Romance languages in the world. In addition to the innumerable volumes dedicated to, among others, various aspects of the grammar of specific varieties, the Taylor Institution is also home to a number of linguistic atlases, located in the Graduate Study Room (also known as the Map Room). A list of atlases (including both physical volumes held at the Taylorian or resources available online) can be found here.
