The Social Science Library has four NOOKs that can be borrowed by members of the University.

The SSL's NOOKs can be used to read downloaded e-books purchased by the Bodleian Libraries from the EBL, Ebrary and EBSCOhost e-book platforms.The NOOKs are also preloaded with public domain e-books relevant to Social Science taught courses.

Borrowing a NOOK

The SSL's NOOKs can be:

  • Borrowed for seven days
  • Renewed twice online through your account on SOLO
  • Reserved online through SOLO if all four NOOKS are on loan
To borrow a NOOK come into the SSL and ask at the issue desk. You will be required to sign a loan agreement if it is the first time you have borrowed a NOOK from the SSL. The loan agreement sets out your responsibilities once a NOOK has been loaned to you.

You can view the availability of the SSL's NOOKs on the NOOK catalogue record on SOLO. Or simply search SOLO for "nook simple touch". If you have any questions please email
