The Bodleian Libraries are undergoing transformation to improve our buildings and reader services. We are endeavouring to deliver an efficient service to our readers during this time but there may be temporary disruption to services. In particular some noisy works will be carried out in the Radcliffe Camera and Old Bodleian Library during the coming year. We will also be moving a significant proportion of our collections to the new Book Storage Facility at Swindon starting from November 2010 and temporarily closing the New Bodleian Library for extensive refurbishment.
From June 2010 – December 2011 we strongly recommend planning ahead for your research visit. Please contact:
- firstname.lastname@example.org if you are renewing or applying for a reader’s card for the first time,
- email@example.com for specific queries about using the Bodleian Libraries’ manuscript or early-printed book collections or
- firstname.lastname@example.org if you have more general research needs or specific queries about the work being carried out.
The Libraries apologise for this short term inconvenience whilst we move ahead with vital estates projects. We will post further information about these projects as they develop highlighting the impact that they will have on existing readers and those planning a visit. Please see www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk for further information about transforming our libraries.
