Weston Library (formerly the New Bodleian)

The Bodleian Libraries are completing their renovation of the New Bodleian building, which will reopen to readers and researchers as the Weston Library - the new home for the Bodleian's Special Collections - in late September 2014. The facility will open in phases from late September 2014. An official opening is planned for March 2015.
