Oxford County Library maintains a special collection in order to conserve local history and to provide access to unique materials that help researchers and the public better understand Oxford’s past.

Oxford County Library collects materials pertaining to the history of Oxford County. Emphasis is given to the acquisition of those items which contribute to the knowledge of the social, civic, religious, economic, and cultural life of the county, both past and present.

Wherever possible, primary source materials of potentially significant research interest will be digitized and made available on the library website to allow researchers free and accessible use at any time
