New contactless card readers are to be installed at the entrance/exit gates in the Bodleian Library as part of essential maintenance works.
To facilitate this work, access to the Radcliffe Camera on Tuesday 18-Thursday 20 July inclusive will be via the Old Bodleian Library and Gladstone Link only*. The Radcliffe Camera and Gladstone Link will close early at 5pm on these days. The Old Bodleian will close at 7pm as normal.
Work on the entrance gates in the Old Bodleian Library (Proscholium) and the Reader Common Room will take place in the week of 24 July.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
*Note: in the event of the fire alarm sounding or other emergency, evacuation will be possible from the Camera via the usual routes.
